MacDonald is the only real regression and this guy lost his top PP time with Hamonic to Streit and Rolston. I'm pretty sure even Jurcina has seen more action there, but not 100%.
Is 19 goals and 52 points supposed to be that impressive? Don't get me wrong-Okposo's a decent 2nd liner-but no more. He lacks offensive production, doesn't use his size to his advantage, and he disappears for long stretches at a time. Put simply: he hasn't developed at all. And the only reason why he hasn't regressed is because quite frankly he had nothing to regress from.

I see so many excuses for almost all of our young players throughout HF. Some posters still insist that Nino is NHL ready. It sucks, but the reality is this team is NOT developing players properly. JT and Hamonic are the exceptions to the rule-not the norm. And JT would have developed well on any of the other 29 teams.
