Oh I know Bailey will be a good 2nd line center which is something to be pleased about for you guys, but it's just interesting to think what NYI could have done down the road with Tavares and Hodgson like at the WJC.

I expect the Isles to be improved next season, but I'm not expecting anything higher than 11th in the East. I'm also not expecting anything more than 20-25 goals for JT in his rookie year.

I am however expecting big things from Okposo. barring injury I see him scoring 30 this year.

The Penguins alt jersey is powder blue, the Islanders alt is royal blue.

Same here. If Tavares has the same type of season like Stamkos (overwhelmed at first, very very good in the 2nd half) I'd be ecstatic...and I do also see Okposo getting 25-30 as well. Okposo has a very realistic chance at turning into a 35g-35a power forward with speed, sooner rather than later.
