Former Isles GM reveals when he knew that the Islanders made a mistake in drafted Josh Ho-Sang

Ho-Sang, now retired, finished his NHL career with just 53 games played, producing a total of 24 points - all of which came with the team that drafted him 28th overall, the New York Islanders. Ho-Sang had a shot in Toronto in 2021, signing a PTO with his hometown Leafs in hopes of winning a job out of training camp. However, he ultimately fell short of his goal, but still signed a 1-year AHL deal to play for the Leafs' AHL affiliate Toronto Marlies.
During his time in Toronto, Ho-Sang appeared to be much more humbled than he ever was during his time on Long Island. He bounced around between the Islanders and AHL Bridgeport and San Antonio before brief stints in Sweden, Toronto and the KHL. This week, his former GM, Garth Snow, spoke about the disappointment of taking a chance on him only to be proven wrong.
Obviously, it goes without saying that attitude is very important in life. A good attitude can land you opportunities that you may not otherwise have obtained. A poor attitude, even when paired with talent, can burn bridges, alter perceptions and ultimately cause problems for all parties involved. It would appear as though Ho-Sang got in his own way, by the sounds of things, at least from Snow's perspective.
WILL JOSH HO-SANG, 27, EVER COME OUT OF RETIREMENT TO PLAY PROFESSIONAL HOCKEY AGAIN?
