Omark is too small and too slow for the NHL and
most of his creativity doesn't really take advantage of his teammates
. I guess that's a sign of low hockey IQ.
Schutlz.... please don't get my hopes up for nothing...
Build up expectation is human,shows passion for the game. Remember the schremp hype, couldnt understand it from a nordic view, same with Gags and Cogs,hadnt seen them playing in their juniors. But the fall is much harder when you have a unrealistic view on a prospect. Schultz looking damn good so far at this level,but i want to lay low, i have seen so many promising 1 st rounders develop to sand. Omark was a 4th rounder, but had proved him self in mens leuage and the national team, his hype came from a couple swedish homers with less undersstanding for the Nhl system and that small players has limit time to show them self,also because they cant be used as roleplayers.
I only agree of the bold part, the reason is that he overthinks his plays and his qualitys has been missused. I would say that hes to smart for his linemates and should make it easier and play faster.
He should carve out a decent nhl career if he find a good fit and adapt his game.
Schultz is gonna be a nhl player in my book, klefbom too, how high they reach is unwritten but i hope they develop them smart and not throw them to the wolves to fast.
