I think sixty five games is the important part of that. How many games did we give slugs like Pouliot and JFJ?

I know Omark had weaknesses, but at least when he had the puck you got the feeling that something was about to happen beyond the predictable muffin into crest on goalie's sweater.

I think Omark deserved more games in the NHL but he probably pissed Tamby off with his cocky attitude. That combined with being a shrimp and a low draft choice are what sealed his fate here imo. Witness the fact that MPS seems to be staying up in the NHL despite having done absolutely nothing to warrant that opportunity. Some players get more chances than others.

Was that before or after his coach said the same thing?
