Guys using that league to stay sharp and in shape aren't going to go full tilt there, Omark is because he's got no job elsewhere. They have nothing to prove to anyone besides staying in shape and not just spending time in the gym, as you well know (if you ever played), the more time you spend away from the ice and train, the more out of game shape you get. They were staying in game shape there. Omark is trying to show he's not someone to be looked over, if that's his intention and it very well should be, he should be just burning that league down with his skills. Instead, Glen Metropolit is on a similar ppg pace as he is. GLEN FREAKING METROPOLIT. Glen is 13yrs his senior.

Why would they go hard there and risk getting injured when they're all hoping the season was going to resume (and it did).

I'm just using logic, period.

The problem a lot of people have here is that they over value their own players to an insane degree. We like our teams and we like the prospects and hope the best for them, we also read stupid talent analysis and projections and hope they reach that with the team these guys are on, but sometimes it just doesn't happen. You have to live with that. Omark could succeed at the NHL level, it just won't be with the Oilers it seems.
