It's hard to gauge Omark's value really...he's been tremendous this year, but these kind of deals rarely go down. I guess I'd put it this way: what the Oilers would get back for him wouldn't be worth would be better for the Oil to just see what happens next year (it's a one year deal I think) and make another sense throwing away the already developing (quite well) potential of Omark for a 5th round pick (likely value) just to end up with an "Omark, but three years younger" - that is, when the Oilers draft whoever in the 5th round, he'll not only be years behind Omark in terms of development but he likely won't turn out as well...

If he's part of package for something, that's different...but by himself, his value doesn't justify a trade of any sorts...
