You mentioned Gagner, lets be real here, Gagner got 49pts(real, not prorated) in his rookie season as an !8 yr old. Omark was 23 and couldn't come close to anything like that.
I recall a few dimestore tricks that got shotdown that weren't replicated here last season and that weren't likely to work much at this level.
Omark on a third line? Like a checking line or a role player line? Surely you can't be serious.
He's 25yrs old and when last seen in the show looked like a rank amateur. Most people caught that, the Oilers caught that. Omark is next to no value at this level.
"I have poor judgement because I'm not an Omark fan.".. hooboy...
I dont know if Omark is nhl caliber, i thinks so, so do Lowetide and willis, others for example Tencer and brownlee doesnt think so.
The last season was a wasted one with injurys and sickness.If we judge omark after his first season, it was down at first and up in the end of the season.He needed indeed the ahl time to get use to the na game with small rinks etc. Came that from developing his game or poor competition as some people mean or a combination.
If the progress came from bad attitude from the opponents, why did not some other players step up and making points. I know we played with a ahl roster at the end but that also means that Omark had about the same of talent in his lines but eberle got a lot worse with taylor injured.
I checked with a sample of the last 24 games of the season, not a big sample but a stretch to the end of season and the last 12 is when Omarks toi started to increase.
Omark first half 12 games/ toi/ 13 minutes 4 points 0g 4a -5
Ebs first half 12 games/ toi/ 16.8 minutes 7 points 3g 4 ass -3
Last 12 Omark 12 games/ toi 18 min ! 9 points 2g 7 ass +-0
Ebs 12 games/ toi 16.6 min 5 points 2g 3 ass - 4
We all know that Eberle is a better player then omark and what he did last season, but that also leaves questionmarks what omark maybe can be in a team who fits and given prime 2 line minutes.
My view on omark has always been that he hasnt been evualated correctly and enough in our org. And now they couldnt deal him for what they expected to get for him, after last season he was worth about Gunnarsson(and replacer for hemsky
) at the hf boards and now he has dropped to a 5th pick, its kind of strange because he hasnt played his way down there, hes been injured and sick .
