Martin St. Louis was a success in the "OLD NHL", so I get the "rule changes", but the reality is that Omark is VERY SMALL and that's why he has to go against guys "twice his size"

Jimmi, this looks more like a showing of dislike than something related to Omark.

The main issue with Omark was his defensive play, his speed and his shot. (the main issue with Linus and Oilers where that influx of talented players that pushed Omark into a situation where he wasnt able to play from his strength)

The fact you dont understand him doesnt make his attitude bad.
He worked very hard so that wasnt an issue.
He has pretty good hockey sense, excellent playmaker, so i dont see your point here either.

If Linus had the shot and speed of St Louis he would have been playing for the Oilers. (or somewhere else in the league)
