Okposo and Bailey give Islanders fans reason to be excited

From Greg Logan of Newsday:

It was just one of six goals in yesterday's scrimmage at the Islanders' rookie camp, but it looked like a blueprint for the future. No.1 draft pick Josh Bailey penetrated the right circle and dished perfectly to budding rookie star Kyle Okposo in the slot, where he flicked it left to defenseman Andy MacDonald, who buried the shot.

You never know, but the decision to put Bailey, the ninth overall pick in June, on the same line with Okposo, the seventh overall pick from the 2006 draft, could be the start of a beautiful relationship.

As the article points out, Bailey will most likely return to Windsor of the OHL, but the future definitely looks bright for these two talented youngsters.

Ballhype: hype it up!
