Okposo has no choice, he is a restricted free agent and will continue to be for the next 5 years.

Anyone doubt this is Moulson's last season on the Island? Man looks like he is on suicide watch in interviews. Remember when he was so happy go lucky last year? Now, there is nothing keeping him here but 55 some odd games.

It's just frustrating how many "Okposo, Tavares, and Bailey will be gone soon" posts I'm reading these days. Restricted free agency is set up so that players cannot leave until they turn 27. Wang will match any offer sheet for any of these players, trust me he's cheap but he'll shell out money for the faces of the franchise.

You might as well say "it doesn't matter how many young studs this team has because they'll all be dead when the world ends in 2012". Like it or not, they're stuck on this team.

Next year will most likely look like this:

Tavares-Couturier-Okposo
Bailey-Shremp-Nino
Grabner-Nielson-Martin/JJ
x-x-x(I have no idea. Free Agents i guess)

Streit-Amac
Hamonic-Hillen
Eaton-x

DP
Poulin

1-Its a very young forward team, but some of the young guys are getting experience
2-Anyone notice that on Bridgeport Bailey is playing LW. Seems they are grooming him for that, not center.
3-Nino will be here as well as Bailey.
4-No top 6 free agent scorer will be here

If healthy this team will be competitive but not a playoff team, unless tavares, okposo and bailey can really turn the corner and Nino and Couturier really come to the NHL hot.

p.s. I don't know how were are going to reach the floor next year.

Not sure where you heard that. They have him listed at center and what I have heard from Bridgeport fans is that he is playing center.

Hmm, strange, I don't know which source to trust.

Could any Bridgeport fans chime in on this? Over on IM the Bridgeport fans were saying he was playing center.

today i was daydreaming and thinking about how much i love the sport of hockey, and how my entire life my team has let me down and gave me an overall negative experience. I then started debating who would be my favorite team if the isles weren't around lol
