I can understand how you guys over there may think that hes just a youtube phenomena. But Ive seen this guy play night after night and hes the real deal. You see players like this every ten years or so in swedish hockey. The last player before him who did the same things in his age is Henrik Zetterberg. Before that it was the Sedins, before that Peter Forsberg and so on.

Im not saying that Omark IS the next Forsberg or Zetterberg but he has all the tools to be an All Star player. But in somw strange way the fact that he was drafted in the fourth round is more important to the Oilers than the fact that he is preforming really well right now.
