Omark and PRV became our first unit PP and top line for nearly half of the season from (Jan 2011 on) or so.
Omark and PRV showed impressive instincts with each other -Omark seemed to find PRV for nice pp goals.
That was Omark and PRV first year as NHLers.
Omark had 27 points in 51 games or translate to approx
43 points in 82 games
in a season. Not bad for a rookie. We were all quite impress with his tenacity and skill. He has relentless pursuit ability of the puck. He doesn't give up on the puck due to his aggressive competitiveness. He is crafty and hard to get off the puck.
Much of that rookie year Omark was sitting well below .500ppg and while giving up a ton of GA. Only at the end of the season, in games that didn't matter, did Omark manage to pad some pts in atypical fashion. His broad line of work here suggests sub .500ppg and with defensive liabilities and lack of compete in own zone and lack of backchecking or coverage in neutral zone. This is a player thats basically allergic to peeling back. Next, how on Earth do you logically prorate his results to a full season when said player wasn't good enough to stick here the full season in either year and then project on the basis of erroneous proration? The jury is still out on this being an NHL player at all and you're projecting full season based on limited sample? Pay attention to how much noise there is in the sample. Also that Omark couldn't score goals here to save his life.

I can't imagine Omark one year playing for anything remotely like a Sutter. He'd be dogfood there.
Columbus, lol, thats the closest thing to the AHL the NHL offers. I think it might be the one place in the NHL where they might regard him.
