All the Isles fans know that Kyle Okposo will be playing his first game as an Isle but is everyone just geting a little to worked up?Don't get me wrong,with the Isles not perfoming as good as us Islander fans would like getting anyone fresh and new who could help this team is a very good thing!

But then I've heard some people say Kyle will be the next Jarome Iginla or Mike Cammalleri and quite frankly Iggy is a special kind of player with heart,gritt,determination and really soft hands!So before you compare him to Iginla so quickly maybe wait 10 years cause thats how long it took for Iggy to grow into the role he's in now!

But when we face Toronto on Tuesday,Teddy Nolan said that he'll be playing with Richard Park which will be a great pair!Because Richard has some veteran knowledge and really could teach Kyle how to do some special dekes or even how to skate faster!But holy cow the our home-town crowd is gonna scream their lungs out when Kyle steps on the ice!

"He's an exceptional player that we're looking forward to see play at the NHL level," said head coach Ted Nolan. "There are certain players who have that instinct. He doesn't just skate and shoot the puck well, he also has that great hockey sense. Kyle has all of the ingredients good players have. We wanted to start him on a line with one of our most reliable guys in Richard Park. And considering Blake Comeau has good hockey sense, the three of them should form a pretty good line out there."

"Anytime you play your first game at any level, especially the NHL it's an exciting time," said Okposo. I just want to go out there, play my game and help my team win. I look at this as a challenge and try to ignore all the hype. I'm just going to do the best I can to help the team win. I don't have any tricks up my sleeve."-Kyle Okposo
