Okposo to my knowledge has never played his off wing 5v5 in the NHL. Reinhart has not either except for a couple shifts this season. Why force them to do it when you don't have to?
Well, he's not lighting it up right now. So why not?
I am sure there are a lot of reasons. At this point, with the way the Sabres are performing I am not sure I would pencil in anyone for any position definitively.
