Okposo A Breakout Candidate

From NHL.com

"8. Kyle Okposo: New York Islanders--All the talk on the Island is about 2009 No. 1 pick John Tavares, but Okposo could earn himself a spot on the U.S. Olympic team with a strong start. He was the Isles' best player in the second half of last season, finishing with a team-high 18 goals, and the Isles are counting on him putting it together for 82 games."

Kyle Okposo was ranked 8th out of the 10 players mentioned. For a complete list, click the link above. Kyle will be looked upon as a scorer, and a leader in the locker room for this young team. Not sure if he will be playing on the first line yet or the second, but make no mistake, anything less than 20 goals will be considered a failure his standards.
