Did you hear? Steven Stamkos is the “big fish” — the most coveted free agent this year, should he go to the open market on Friday.
That said, another scoring forward that is garnering plenty of attention, as teams are now allowed to talk to pending unrestricted free agents, is Kyle Okposo, the 28-year-old right winger who has scored at least 20 goals in three of the last five seasons.
In the final year of his five-year contract worth $14 million, Okposo scored 22 goals and 64 points this past season for the Islanders.
Sounds like no shortage of suitors for Kyle Okposo now that UFA contact window has opened. WPG, STL, LAK, MIN, DET among them, source says.— Arthur Staple (@StapeNewsday) June 25, 2016
Don't overlook BUF and FLA when it comes to Kyle Okposo either.— Arthur Staple (@StapeNewsday) June 25, 2016
