NYI Fan Central Comments:
This seems more about his contract no longer counting for this season with the remaining games because if he were ready why not call him up weeks ago when they needed him most to keep the Islanders in the playoff race?
This takes him out of Bridgeport's mix at a time they sent back another prospect who should be here in Jeremy Colliton if the club is going by the same standard and likely hurts the Sound Tigers playoff drive even more.
I think this is a mistake and I hope it's not for publicity because it sure does not seem like it's the best interest of Kyle Okposo who needs to be part of a playoff race in Bridgeport more.
Oh well, it will interesting to see if he can handle the speed of the NHL level after just getting used to the AHL. Not sure what right wing gets demoted for this, I would think Tim Jackman goes back to the AHL.
