That may be a combination of poor conditioning and trying to do too much on each shift, but if you look at him versus JT after each shift, KO looks like he is going to collapse while JT looks ready for his next shift.
I guess this is where I gulp down my crow
When Cappy announced he was going with the Moulson-Tavares-Okposo line, a poster pointed out that Tavares had been playing in Europe, while Okposo (a slow starter), had stayed home.
I'd read Okposo had workout sessions/skating sessions with other nhlers during the lockout. I told the poster we shouldn't stress, pointed out Tavares 22 pts last Jan, when he had Moulson and Okposo on his wings.
Clearly the guy's concerns have proven valid. That line looks out of sinc, like they never played together.
