Looking at their first 4 seasons in the NHL Okposo has had more injury problems them Hemsky.

Hemskys GP first 5 years

Rookie season : 59 gp (5 games missed due to injury, the rest scratches as he was a rookie)
2nd season : 71 gp (11 games missed due to injury)
3rd season : 81 gp (missed 1 game due to sickness)
4th season : 64 gp (missed 16 games from a shoulder injury)
5th season : 74 gp (missed 7 games due to a knee injury)

Okposo GP first five years :

Rookie season: 65 gp (missed 13 games due to an arm injury, rest scratches)
2nd season : 80 gp (got h1n1 apparently? lol)
3rd season : 38 gp (missed 44 games due to shoulder surgery)
4th season : 79 gp (not sure why he missed 3 games)
5th season : TBD.

Pretty interesting. Both players have injury troubles.

First four years Hemsky 272 GP = 194 points
First four years Okposo 262 GP = 156 points

Obviously the last few seasons haven't been kind to Hemsky and that plays a huge part in determining value but I thought it was interesting to compare.
