You are aware that Okposo is one of about 4 players in the organization that is a true Right Winger and has a right handed shot, right? Also you do know that this is the Islanders, right? When did we become such a power house that we can just ship out 23 year old first round draft picks that score at 20-25 goals per year pace because they have 2 points after 4 games?
In Nino's next 200 NHL games, he is going to have to score 67 goals to catch Kyle's production at the same point in their career. Hope it happens, and I hope Kyle is still his teammate at that point.
Answer: Yes Replace KO with Nino
Last Time I looked They both are playing right wing!
Nino wants out because he believes he is ready for The bigs and was not even invited to the 1 week camp.
KO is a drifter....he is weak on the puck and loses it to often.....
Fact is KO needs a change....He is not a first line winger...it is that simple
