Who does his game compare to at the NHL level?
those are so different it's not even funny. One is saying he's a playmaker, the other one is saying he's a goal scorer.
I think its an indication that Kyle may also bring a physical side to his game, like both those guys do.
Who knows, if AO gets some linemates worth passing to maybe he'll become a playmaker
Yep, that's who I was going to say.
So now that I know his style of play can he be a 30 goal scorer in the league? How many points is he capable of putting up potential wise.
There was a guy a couple of years ago getting compared to Morrow and Deadmarsh. His name was McArdle. How does Okposo stack up against him?
Where do you think he will get drafted? what type of potential does he own point wise?
I say top 10-15 is where he'll get drafted.
I think he has 25-30 goal potential at the least, but remember, power forwards develop slowly compared to other players. I can see him being a 40 goal, 90 point guy in his prime.
I bet he goes earlier than that. Okposo's stock is on the rise, and if you go back a few years and look at how high Blake Wheeler went, Okposo's got that same kind of potential to be "the guy" for a team that will take him off the board a good deal earlier than where his Central, Red Line, etc. ranking would indicate.
I've seen him a few times, and he reminds me of Bill Guerin in his prime.
