Sorry what was Omark given?
Did he get more than one pass this entire game?
I for one think its obvious when he gets sat in the third that enough is enough, 4 games is up time to send him throw waivers.
If the entire team can get away with lame ass play and omark gets called out for that. Its ridicilous, renney give your head a shake.
You are aware that Omark had more ES TOI than both Gagner and Hemsky right? Also guys like Smyth.
He had the same amount of PP time as Hemsky and Gagner.
He legitimately was given 2nd line TOI this game, I'm not sure how you can even think of complaining.
For his 2nd line minutes, he had 2 giveaways (2nd highest amongst the forwards) 1 takeaway and 1 shot and 1 missed shot. Also 2 PIM(leading to the GWG).
He's ineffective. Nothing else to it. He's not developed enough to play in a top-6 role.
Oh and Ryan Whitney with 6 giveaways, holy crap.

Truer words have never been spoken. It wouldn't surprise me if it was between horcoff and one of the kids getting traded that management would trade one of the kids before trading horcoff. Don't know what incriminating evidence he has on Lowe/tambellini
I don't know how much longer I can take watching Horcoff. It's crap that we have to rely on 20 year olds to carry our team, it's even sadder that we are going to be wasting their ELC's coming last every year, unless of course we pull it together next year. I'll be disgruntled as long as Horcoff is captain let alone on the team.. Also if they fork out too much money for Smyth and don't make a big free agent signing on defense I'm going to really be calling for Lowbellini to step aside....
Draft a Center 2nd or 3rd overall, trade Gagner for a dman, strip Horc of his captaincy(pipe dream I know) sign a free agent defense man and find anyone to take over for Belanger and maybe I'll be happy..... Ugh even after that a Dubnyk/Khabi combo might take us down so we'll need to likely find some sort of replacement.
Ok ranting out of the way, Petry killed it and always will, Potters play is in the potty, Horc is Horc, and Smyth is looking old. Gagner/Omark seem to be too much on the perimeter and make our top 6 too small. For guys like them to be effective they need to be fast, which they don't seem to be. Hopefully they can get replaced with some size next year.
