Preseason game one and only one period in the books but I'll provide the first hot taek.
Josh Ho-Sang has a legit shot at making the team, keeping Nelson and Strome down the middle and playing RW with Barzal in juniors.
In terms of roster eligibility, it makes way more sense to give Barzal the 9 games and have Ho-Sang in the minors but then it wouldn't be a hot taek now would it?
But seriously, kid can skate and twice has beaten their D to my viewing on a possible icing as a sort of designed play and his vision is terrific with finding the dmen. Even if he spends the whole year in the minors I really can't wait to see the stat line versus Dal Colle head to head.
