Okposo 1 year, and he could've arguably used more. Bailey didn't spend much time in the AHL, and also could've probably used some time there. The point is that you don't use the same exact tactics with every player.

Tavares is a #1 overall pick and going to be a generational talent.

Why don't you ask the Islanders how things went with Nino.
