Maybe I underestimate the Swiss league. This seems like the kind of place one would want to go to give the appearance of good potential for production. Its not SEL, its not KHL. Its a much easier place to pad pts.

Most of these NHLers playing in Europe are biding their time, not trying to prove anything. Omark in a different boat and a likely castoff should probably be playing in a more competitive environment. Sure his linemate is sought after by Detroit but again thats one guy on the possible way up that has an in. Omark has exhausted his draft team chances already and is in next chance land. A place of indeterminate conclusion..
