Kyle Okposo sees similarities between Jack Eichel and John Tavares.
"Obviously, I don't know Jack's game as well as I knew Johnny's from playing with him, but I see a lot of similarities in the hype and the skill set and some of the things that he does out there from when Johnny was 18," Okposo said. "I know where Johnny's career path went, and I know how he worked and how hard it was for him to get there. Just looking forward to maybe saying a couple things to Jack or sharing some of those experiences with him and just trying to help him grow." Okposo might also end up on a line with Eichel, just as he was with Tavares. Okposo signed a seven-year, $42 million contract with Buffalo, which puts him in a position to be a central figure as the Sabres attempt to transition from a rebuilding squad to a competitive one.
