Its ridicoulus how you make a truth from a rumor! Omark is 24 has played 1.5 years more adult hockey then Mps.Comparing him to schremp is very strange, omark has played and made an impact in the 2 best leauges outside Nhl and are you so naive that you think they not need to play defence there or in the swedish national team
then you havent seen much icehockey outside nhl.
The thing is you must have matching players to get maximum from omark! He isnt so bad defensively as it looks in the stats, but in a team with the worst defence in the leauge and a smallish c and another rookie trying to adjust to na icehockey its not optimal have to playing in the own zone,
and as a winger you shouldnt need to play a c-roll (deep) there.
Ive seen enough from him in nhl and cant see him fail to make a impact here too.
He has good puck skills, is good on the forecheck and is good on the cycle. But he is god awful defensively. And he is the worst among the 3 on his line so who is hurting who? If you can't see that then you haven't watched enough hockey period.
He can learn to be good defensively if he is open to it, if he commits himself, and is willing to put in the work.
