In Elliot Friedman's 30 thoughts this week he has this tidbit:
4. Edmonton is trying to trade AHLer Linus Omark, who deserves a shot at the NHL level and isn't going to get it with the Oilers. This is pure speculation on my part, but Buffalo makes sense. The Sabres are on a pace to score 137 goals. The last time a team scored fewer? Chicago in 1953-54, with 133 in 70 games. Twelve teams bettered that in lockout-shortened 1995. Last year? Eight. Omark's not a cure, but it's a sensible gamble, no?
I though it was an interesting thought.
He's a RW, a position upon which the Sabres aren't exactly teeming with talent. He's 26, so he is a little older.
UFA in the summer though but he's only making 600K so trading a late rounder or an AHL'er on the chance he might be worth a spot in an abysmal Sabres lineup, maybe pans out.
The chap has a little talent. Now I haven't looked at any of his fancy stats or anything but it seems to me he might be a welcome addition on a team with almost Zero scoring.
What are your thoughts?
