And THAT's one of my biggest gripes about Okposo.
The toe drag move is just a symptom of Okposo's overall style of play, which is a finesse player in open ice rather than the power forward we had hoped for. He still plays more the power forward along the walls, but the power part is not so much as it should/could be.
He has to stop the cute puck dangling plays out in open ice, go straight ahead.
