That's the thing, he wouldn't hurt at all for ice time because Cappy rolls the third line as much as the second. Look at Comeau's AVG TOI. Moving Okposo to the Blake/Comeau line would also balance the lines out a bit IMHO....

Grabner/Neilsen/Martin can put up points, play solid defense, be an energy line.
Comeau/Bailey/Okposo can put up points, play solid defense, be an energy line.

It might not sound like much, but on the road when you've got the second change, it helps with matchups. It gives Cappy more options, and makes the Islanders a deeper team overall.
