    I went to my first OHL game 2 years ago and O'Marra was the primary reason that I enjoyed it so much. I try to make it to 3 or 4 Otters games a year now. Kind of sucks to see him leave.

    Saginaw is just scary now.

    First Steagle Colbeagle, then Nigel Williams, and Ryan O'Marra...

    Can't believe that Erie was so desperate as to trade their captain... :shakehead

    I think it was more a case of Saginaw making Erie an offer they couldn't turn down. It's an overpayment for O'Marra.

    Erie got a terrific return for a player who won't be with the team next year. Torquato is a good young player, and the picks could/should help Erie out next year and the year after.

    Saginaw is looking awfully good so far, and O'Marra's experience in big game situations should help them.

    Good deal for the Islanders. O'Marra's been good on an awful team this year, it can only help his development to play on a contender.
