Doug Weight On Why Josh Ho-Sang Was Sent To Bridgeport

from Arthur Staple of Newsday,

Doug Weight had nothing but praise for Ho-Sang and said the rookie took this demotion well.

“He did or he’s a damn good actor,” Weight said. “We’ve had great talks. It’s never easy, whether it’s a conversation about being scratched or something like this. It was lengthy, good, healthy and from what I take from it, he couldn’t be more excited to go down, prove to himself and the organization that this isn’t going to go on anymore, that we do need him and he’ll come back and help us here. I suspect the way he’s taken this he’ll be pushing to get back real quick. Nothing is negative about the relationship — people will read into it but there’s no failure in it.”...

“I don’t think we’re as good a team as we can be without Josh on the ice. He can make us better and there’s some areas he wants to address,” Weight said. “He wants to find out how to be better at those things. We’re all in a good place with this relationship, it’s on the right path. And we have the utmost respect for Brent and what he instills in his guys.”

Don’t you see? One situation is a young kid who hasn’t yet proven himself to be an everyday player being sent down to the minors and the other is a guy who might be his team’s best pure goal-scorer and was an everyday player last year who held out because he didn’t want to play for the coach.

EXACTLY the same.

Yes but I’m afraid the comparisons are more on the Ho-Sang/AA side than they should be.

It’s never a good thing if you’re being compared to Ho-Sang.

True; Ho-Sang has been a problem guy from day one.

I still look more at the player/coach relationship still, but definitely something to be considered is how each of these players have come up through the minors.
