LINUS OMARK is a 26-year-old Swedish hockey player. In the minors, he often makes highlight-reel plays like this one:

Omark is Edmonton Oilers property. He's played just one NHL game this year. (Admittedly, the Oilers already have too many fancy-schmancy softies at forward.) Omark has just eight goals and 22 assists in 66 career NHL games.

Why can Omark terrorize the minors, but not stick in the NHL?

Same reason the Harlem Globetrotters don't play in the NBA. Substance > style.
