I know some posters will be concerned about talk of playing back in Sweden. I can't blame him for enjoying being home./QUOTE]
The way he said it wasnt like Yea i want to be here or anything, the way he said it was more like your never garanteed a spot in the nhl.

I know some posters will be concerned about talk of playing back in Sweden. I can't blame him for enjoying being home. I do hope he continues to progress and be sure not to allow entitlement to creep in. He endured some adversity last year, so hopefully this year, he'll set the league on fire. He'll be good for several highlight reels at least.
For a small guy its pretty decent.

Before I completely detatched a ligament in my arm I could do multiple sets of 200lbs easily.
That was pretty much warming up weight.

Curious whether the quoted amount is something he can do one rep only or in sets.

In other news the latest joke going around is Gagner supposedly weighing 195lbs.(more than the phoney 190 the Oilers have had him down for)

Where do they weigh these guys. Jupiter? A Farmers Market?

This is the same team that says Gagner is 5'11, Eberle is 6'0 and Omark is 5'10.

Some new quotes from today:

On playoff experience in okc

“I learned a lot in Oklahoma City,” he explained. “The ice and systems are a lot different than they were in Sweden. I think it was good that I got the opportunity to play in the post-season there as well.

“We didn't go very far, but the experience was really good and I think I'm a better player because I got that chance.”

On earning a spot on the team

“I can only do my best and push it every day and take bigger steps than last year,” he said. “Hopefully I can start the season here and have a good year.

“I have to be one of the best players.”

Too bad Mark O'Mear plays golf instead of hockey. An awesome line would be:
Omark-O'Marra-Mark O'Meara

If Tiger Woods played hockey, that line would be

Omark - O'Marra - Woods

To be fair, they are that tall once they are wearing skates
