FIVE SUGGESTED TRADE DESTINATIONS FOR HO-SANG
- Here are the recent rumors from the Hockey News.
- The Edmonton Oilers, Boston Bruins, the Hurricanes, the Senators and Arizona Coyotes top Steven Ellis’ list of suggested trade destinations for Josh Ho-Sang.
- The winger is currently in Toronto awaiting a trade by the New York Islanders.
- Ellis believes the Oilers should swap Jesse Puljujarvi for Ho-Sang.
- Puljujarvi is playing in Finland awaiting a trade.
- Ellis suggests a reunion with midget hockey linemate Connor McDavid might spark Ho-Sang.
- Puljujarvi is believed to have more upside than Ho-Sang.
- There’s a belief the young Finn can still blossom into a top-six winger, something Ho-Sang hasn’t done at the NHL and AHL levels.
- Ellis felt Ho-Sang could be an affordable fix for the Bruins’ lack of right-wing depth.
- He also suggests the Coyotes flip disappointing Christian Fletcher or struggling Lawson Crouse for Ho-Sang.
- If the Bruins though Ho-Sang would help they would’ve acquired him by now. I’m not sure the Coyotes are willing to give up on Fletcher but could part with Crouse.
- As Ellis points out, he and Ho-Sang are once-promising prospects who haven’t played up to potential.
- Ellis also suggests the Carolina Hurricanes and Ottawa Senators as possible destinations.
- The Hurricanes are believed in the market for a top-nine forward.
- They were angling for winger Ondrej Kase in trade talks regarding defenseman Justin Faulk with the Anaheim Ducks before shipping the blueliner to St. Louis.
- Ho-Sang isn’t in Kase’s class.
- The rebuilding Senators, meanwhile, don’t appear to be interested in the Islanders’ winger.
