Okposo merits strong consideration for Team USA

There are 17 comments on the Newsday story from Apr 6, 2009, titled Okposo merits strong consideration for Team USA. In it, Newsday reports that:

Rookie Kyle Okposo won't be suiting up for the Islanders against Carolina tonight at RBC Center because of a groin strain, but assuming he's healthy after the season ends Sunday, he is a strong candidate to suit up for Team USA in the IIHF World Championships, starting April 24 in Switzerland.

Just looking at the stats...Scott Gomez---74gp 16goals 41 asst -4 6.2%sp Kyle Okposo 63gp 18goals 20 asst -7 11.3% sp. One plays for a last place team and is not a big name free agent and the other.......

Bravo to Kyle, a well deserved consideration. But could Kyle and all of the other Islanders be playing somewhere else because Kate Murray is holding up The Lighthouse Project? Possibly, very possibly.

Okposo couldn't make Team New Jersey. The dude is soooo overrated. And will someone PLEASE tell "The Wrecker" to use conditioner in his hair.

You mean "super dud". Even "The Wrecker" skates better than Okpooso.

Nope, It ain't. All beers imported from overseas have to be brewed differently than those served domestically. this is to retard any spoilage over the time it takes to ship it , store it, reship it, etc even if they are kept refrigerated.

Recently has absolutely casually found out (at any forum) one interesting number of a purse on web money, and so sending on it of money from 1 up to 50 $ you receive back literally in an hour-one and a half the same money, but already with in 30. I firstly have not believed, but, as they say, greed has taken upwards, certainly, has begun with a minimum. So sending I have received dollar 1, 33 $ back has reached already up to 50 - have received 65 back. All is real, the main thing not more often 4 times a week. Here number of purse Z174043765609. Success to you. Who can will recollect
