this was my problem, After seeing him play in person here in Europe I made my views clear before he stepped foot in the NHL--but it was made clear I had no idea what I was talking about. Some people with some players want to see what they want to see. Look at me and Brule, took me awhile to realize that he was not the player I had hoped he was. Omark size and style of play was always meant for European ice and not NHL style. The game played here in Europe is different than that played in North America--I love the size of the ice here in Europe and wished that as the NHL teams got new arena over the last 15 years they would have made the ice size European style. I think the game would have opened up more.
