Its just that IMO based on watching both players play Okposo has more puck skills and scoring touch than Brown. I love having Brown on the Kings and he's at his best throwing big checks and crashing the net. Okposo also has that quality but his hands and instincts are better. Yes they have yet to translate into a 20 goal year but he did have 18 goals in 65 games in 08-09. My thinking is that Okposo would score on a higher percentage of chances than Brown.
