Are we really so concerned with a 3rd/2nd liner being moved for another asset we can use to make the team better? Fact is that we can replace Okposo easily and with better, more complete young players.
Nelson, Sundstrom (righty shot), Kabanov (another righty), Bailey, Persson, maybe Petrov, maybe Lee.
If we can package Okposo and Nino for a #2 defenseman or a stud scorer such as Bobby Ryan I would not hesitate..
I'll say it again...Okposo the 3rd liner is not worth too much angst if the return is good for us.

I love how players in the AHL, KHL and college who have never SNIFFED an NHL game are being written in as more complete young players and upgrades on Okposo.
