Islanders Insight's picture

It doesn’t happen very often, but when Isles captain John Tavares doesn’t play, his team struggles.

Islanders Insight's picture

Kyle Okposo is a difference maker. Kyle Okposo is a work horse. Kyle Okposo is undeniably talented, strong on his skates, and possesses a heavy shot.  But Kyle Okposo is currently on a struggling, and for all intents and purposes, ‘bad’ team.
