    On a side note, is Josh Ho-Sang actually very good and loud, or just loud?

    I don't want this to get off too far but I really can't tell if he's as good as the talk or what.
    I think his character concerns are blown out of proportion, that being said I still don't take him. Give me Eric Cornel or Dougherty and move on.

    So you're saying that SIZE DOESN'T MATTER?

So yeah, think of this as Patrick O'sullivan but with Eric Kane in Winnipeg issues instead of parental ones.
    That doesn't hold up though, if he's Connor McDavid good he's top 5 material. Patty O was skilled but nobody was saying he was as good as Eric Staal or anything. Anyhow if he's as good as he thinks he is I hope he keeps his **** together.
    There was a LOT of hype about Patrick O'Sullivan. The draft in a lot of ways was the O'Sullivan Show, as the camera was focused more on him when the Kings passed on him to draft Boyle and Tambellini. And O'Sullivan was thought of to be one of the most talented players in the draft.

    As for Ho Sang, I don't think it's his attitude as much as his lack of commitment to all around and physical play that will turn off the Kings. I don't know if there are any team issues, but I've read the overbearing cockiness just scratches the surface.

    I wouldn't mind the Kings taking a chance with a later pick, but definitely not the first.

    Masin is one of my favorites in the draft. He just seems like a King - just battle and find a way to get it done, no cheating yourself type. Lemieux looks like he would be a fun late choice as well.

    Isn't it nice of New Jersey to help us out again by giving us a higher pick this year for signing Kovalchoke???

    To be clear I didn't mean to imply that the Ho Sang was ever going to be a King. I was simply curious as to if he's as good as he says he is. I didn't realize Patty O was that divisive in the 03 draft. My memories of that draft were very simple and I didn't follow the pipeline nearly as closely back then. In fact I'm pretty sure I had no idea who Dustin Brown was. Seems like on further reflection POS is a good comparable in terms of the potential upside/downside since nobody is saying the kid isn't very good as an offensive hockey force.

    I don't think Ho-Sang is as good as he thinks he is. But he CAN be as good as he thinks he is (meaning the best player of the draft).

    But he's visibly non-commital to certain aspects of the game and plays small. He's a smart kid though. If he understands, matures, and commits himself more, he could be an exceptional player.

    I've seen a handful of mock drafts that project Ho Sang to the Kings. Would be an interesting pick, and Lombardi has shown he isn't afraid to gamble on a guy with supposed charterer issues.
