Insight: "You look at some of the success they had as a line last (season), this is something we wanted to look at right away," Capuano said. "We're not going to waste a whole lot of time experimenting. Okposo skated with Tavares and Moulson 10.74 percent of the time last season, according to leftwinglock.com, and scored 45 points (24 G, 21 A), but the Islanders need a replacement for P.A. Parenteau, who skated with the top line 16.4 percent of the time last season and scored 67 points (18 G, 49 A) but has signed with Colorado. Look for Okposo to get a fantasy boost playing with the team's top players.
