#6 Brassard Columbus 275gp-51g-100a-154p
#7 Okopso Islanders 271gp-68g-93a -161p
#8 Mueller Pheonix 254gp-55g-88a -143p
#9 Sheppard Minnesota 244gp-11g-38a-49p

I agree about Okposo. I still think he can develop even more. I'm not as sold on Bailey. And I think part of the problem with Okposo was that too much was expected out of him. As soon as the Isles picked him you heard "future captain" and "the next Iginla". I think that whole next Iginla thing stuck in peoples heads and had him doomed from the start. If he is a 25 goal/year guy, that's fine. I am sure isles fans can live with that. I just think some had him pegged as a 30-35 goal scorer.
