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.
Would it be fair to state that Tavares currently has two imperfect wings, and while his line would be fine with one, the other really needs to be a solid two way physical player? I criticize both Matt & Kyle, but if you made me choose one over the other it would be Matt all the way. Reading about Kyle's conditioning is also concerning. A guy his age shouldn't be exhibiting that much rust.
