- We wonīt give you the max and weīre not sure that you can make the team because we have a lot of young guys with your size.
From the Oilers perspective this is the correct decision and its not at all clear how Linus would do here without his blanket..In a capped league.

The biggest reason Omark picked Russia was because they believed in the kid. Next year Omark will sign a great deal with another NHL-club and will probably become a star.
More prophesy. Lotto numbers please.

If you think that the Russians is getting Omark because of a penalty shot in a friendly game youīre truly ignorant. The Russians have scouted the kid as much or truly even more than the Oilers.
Well, personally I'm glad you wrote "truly" in there. It really adds credibility..i was starting to doubt you there.

Omark is a better player than Robert Nilsson. Omark has a better shot of making the Swedish Olympic team than Robert Nilsson does... Nilsson makes 2.0M next year. For comparisons.
Better than Nilsson??? Gasp! What??? Nilsson???

The new Chinese car. Better than Lada. Yes Lada..

Kevin Lowe is not making the Oliers a better team. The NHL is every swedish kids dream. Kevin Lowe couldnīt even use and just simply get Omark to feel that the Oilers believed in him. Thatīs the making of a terrible GM.
Thank you for enlightening the board.

We here in Edmonton need people like you to spoonfeed us all the slanted info.
