1. Okposo will become the only RH shooting forward on the team. The Isles have two RH shooting prospects, Strome and Kabanov, but they're not ready. Rhett Rhakshani will lose too many physical battles to play more than a 4th line role.
I read a NYI blog a few weeks ago about Kabanov and came away wondering,if the isles are balking at a long term deal for Parenteau because they feel Kabanov is only 1-2 yrs away from the nhl?Don't shoot the messenger.I'm just speculating.

Parenteau is far better suited for the Islanders than he is for Montreal. The Islanders are better keeping him than letting him go. There ought to be plenty of common ground for a deal.

That said, if he's going to get over 4M for more than a couple of years, it's just not worth it.
This is Parenteau's first chance at a huge payday.I will be very surprised if he does not get a 4-5 yr deal from some team.
