"Math Says….."

Ryan O’Marra (#22 in photo for Stockton) was the subject of a discussion today between Jason Gregor and the Oilers Kevin Prendergast.

Prendgergast suggested that O’Marra had endured a tough season one year ago because of injury but was coming along well on the checking line in Springfield and killing penalties to boot.

I found it an interesting contrast to what the math is telling us about Ryan O’Marra.

This season, in 12 games, he has zero goals and 2 assists and is -1. Further, one of those assists took place on the powerplay, meaning that in a dozen AHL games Ryan O’Marra has one even strength assist.

One year ago O’Marra’s AHL numbers (31gp, 2-7-9) were seen as being a huge disappointment. I think his career tailspin can be traced back to September 16, 2006 when he broke his ankle, and then much later in that season (I believe late April) a knee injury ended his year. Since then, he’s been a marginal AHL player. He’s been quality in the ECHL but based on draft pedigree should never have seen Stockton.

Kevin Prendergast says he’s coming along, the math says he’s running on the spot. We’ll see.

    Given Springfield’s PK efficiency this season, I’m really not convinced that killing penalties for them is an item that boosts O’Marra’s CV.

  2. Scott says:

    Seems to me that’s like saying Brodziak is coming along well this season in the NHL.

  3. RiversQ says:

    Well, Prendergast knows his role. He just has to keep up this charade for one more year and then no one will remember the kid anyway. Nice trade.

  4. Ribs says:

    Anyone catch the “altercation” Peckham had that he’s being suspended 3 games and fined for?

  5. Doogie2K says:

    @Ribs: That’d be the one he had in warmup the other night. Dennis mentioned it in one of the threads below.

  6. Dennis says:

    It’s all a rich tapestry, isn’t it?

    08

    - 94 doesn’t get paid
    - he’s shipped for Nilsson, O’Marra and what turns out to be a middling first round round pick. Lowe says that was the best that was offered while other GM’s say Smyth wasn’t put up for the requisite and perhaps sufficent auction.
    - Oilers ink Penner for between 1.5-2 mill less season than Smyth depending on what you believe happened. And they also forfeit picks in the process
    - Penner shows up to camp out of shape – or perhaps that’s the shape he’s always in – and eyebrows arch.
    - Nilsson has a poor start but strong finish and then he signs an affordable contract to boot
    - Smyth struggles in first year in Col
    - O’Marra plays like shit and the pick, Plante, has a disappointing year

    09
    - Smyth’s counting stats aren’t any great shakes in his second year in Col
    - Penner continues to wash down his burgers and fries With Shakes and looks to be a guy who’s weight and consistency will always be issues.
    - Nilsson’s about 5-10 games away from washing away his ’08 positive goodwill.
    - O’Marra’s still junk
    - Plante bounces back early on.

    And considering we know who made the moves there hasn’t been NEARLY enough play given to Lowe’s throttling remarks. It’s no wonder that him and Brian Burke eventually came to verbal blows.

    You’ve got to have a significant ego to steer a big ship like an NHL club but both of these guys are insufferable blowhards.

    All the breakfasting in the world doesn’t change what Lowe is as a professional GM: petulant and spiteful.

    And perhaps we can also throw in meddling considering these latest comments came as a reaction to fan unrest during a season when he’s supposedly not even any longer our GM.

    *Throttle*

    I have to say it’s a bit of a surprise no one picked up on that phrase. I mentioned it a couple of posts ago and after that it’s kind of been kicked around but really that’s a BP fastball for someone who would like to quote it and then list the Oilers transaction history.

  9. Dennis says:

    I was on it the day I read it but it seemed to slip past most guys:)

  10. Lowetide says:

    Dennis: Where did you write about it, I missed it.

  11. Ribs says:

    I remember Dennis chomped on the fodder over at ON that day….Not that I read that …tripe…

  12. St George says:

    And perhaps we can also throw in meddling considering these latest comments came as a reaction to fan unrest during a season when he’s supposedly not even any longer our GM.

    Apparently I missed something recently. What’s the short summary?

  13. Lowetide says:

    Kevin Lowe: “For the naysayers who think we sit around and feel comfortable in our positions, I’d like to take them and throttle them. They have no idea how much we put into this, how much we grieve and sweat and the other emotions we exude after losses.”

  14. St George says:

    Thanks LT.

    That’s a rediculous statement from a guy in his spot.

  15. Kris says:

    “They have no idea how much we put into this, how much we grieve and sweat and the other emotions we exude after losses.”

    Woe unto the highly paid general managers of sports teams! We cannot comprehend their suffering. Job cannot comprehend their suffering.
