The Islanders don't appear close to agreeing to an extension with pending free agent RW Kyle Okposo, reports Darren Dreger of TSN (Mar. 8).
Dreger notes that many believe Okposo will hit the open market in July.
There was some dialogue between the Islanders and Okposo before last month's trade deadline, Dreger said, but those talks didn't heat up.
If Okposo signs elsewhere, the "inconvenience of Barclays Center" could be part of the reason, Dreger explained.
Okposo, 27, has 17 goals and 35 assists in 61 games this season.
