Omark Must Be Faking His Enthusiasm


Linus Omark is my favourite player to follow during this lockout who doesn’t have a last name that rhymes with “Fall”.

By now, you’re familiar with Linus Omark’s situation.  Now that you mention it, if he had a contract with the Oilers, he’d still likely be overseas during the lockout.

How’s he doing in Switzerland?

Look at that.  No heart, no soul, and 7-18-25 in 17 games.  Must be tough to keep up those type of numbers if you don’t care.

(Side note:  God, Zetterberg.)

Anyone still want to use the “doesn’t fit” argument right now? When (if) the NHL ever gets this year off the ground, Omark will be one of the few that played for the NHL last year who will remain in Europe.  He’ll finish his year out with Zug in a 50 game season.

You think he’ll have much difficulty finding work in 2013-14 with the NHL if he finishes with 65 points in a 50 game season?  Neither do I.
