Ive seen him set up plays that no one saw coming. Happens alot. He is more dangerous for this reason. MCdavid has alot more substance to his game and is more exciting to watch. He does incredible things in the flow of the game that make sense. Ho sang is a complete show off lets be honest .
Mcdavid has more points this year than Ho-sang. He is more of a team player. ALOT MORE. Ho-Sang likes to show off for no reason. He likes to dangle and spin around. Things like this have no substance to me. Its more a selfish act "look at me" i hear how the kids and people respond to it. Im annoyed watching it and some are excited usually young kids. Ho-sang wants to do everything on his own, this will not happen in the OHL. I see him as a show off. He stands out but seems more interested in showing off than putting the puck in the net. Hosang is a puck hog to put it mildly. Ive watched them play about 40 times this year together. In my opinion Mcdavid has caught and surpassed Ho-sang this year. I dont think its even close. Ho sangs selfish play really turns me off. His minor midget coach wont say anything, but his OHL coach will. Turnovers are not cool in the OHL, either is trying to show off and embarass guys for your own ego.
With respect, Ive seen the players extensively over the past two years, Ive diagnosed everything about their game.
You have your opinions, which ive tried to respect, but its getting a bit over the top. Lets not try to tear down a 15 year old kid just because you dont enjoy him. To be honest, there is no reason to tear down one 15 year old to celebrate another player.
I love Ho-Sang's individual skill set. He oozes confidence and has the ability to dazzle. Did you see Taylor Hall in Kingston or Stamkos in Markham in their draft years? They where similarly as dominent as Ho-Sang, but did not have someone labelling them as 'selfish'. I have seen those players and how they grew, and see a similar path for Ho-Sang.
I have my opinions, you have yours, as I have said, ive tried to repsect yours, but it seems as thou anyone who posts anything positive about Ho-Sang is followed by your tearing him down.
Lets relax a bit, its minor midget. Players have played individual styles dating back to current NHL stars like Stamkos, Tavares and Seguin. If you saw them play, and put Ho-Sang's play beside them, you can see what everyone is very excited by Ho-Sang.
I was sitting beside an OHL GM yesterday at Mastercard talking about the Marlies, and he told me that the two players are the best players to come through the GTHL in 10 years. Thats an amazing thing to think about.
BOTH players have a great future, so lets celebrate BOTH. I think thats fair, especially when taking about 15 year olds.
