Other than Suter and Lupul, none are top liners. Wilson is probably the only other one I would consider trading Okposo for.

In other words, if you are expecting an all star with the #7 pick, you are expecting too much. Okposo is developing better than the players drafted around him and better than most #7 picks.
Well played Kasper, well played.
