25 a year, maybe 30 once or twice. Assists at anywhere from 30-40

50-50 guy.

I'll be disappointed if he doesn't win at least one Rocket Richard trophy.

35+/40 guy. When PAP starts playing like PAP, Okposo gets moved to the 1st line where he belongs and lights it up.

I don't think he has the finish to be a 30 goal guy consistently.

That being said, regardless of last year I think he'll be a 25/40 guy consistently.

He's become a different pro than I had hoped or expected but I still think he's got a lot of upside, especially on offense.

But if he never gets better than he is, you cannot be disappointed. He's a really good hockey player. I do hope he gets better though.

I see a guy who has 25 to 35 goal seasons 30 to 40 assists. I'd love to see him hit 40 but he's still young so who knows

I really don't see Okposo being a hign goal scorer. I say he will be a 25/40-50 guy.

I used to project 35-40 goal seasons, but I am learning that he doesn't have that pure finish worthy of 35-40 goal seasons. Regardless, he's a better playmaker than expected.

Consistent 25-30 g, 35-45 a.

Okposo has hands and thats a terrible myth that he can't finish. 25-30 is a reasonable estimate though he has the skill to do more.
