If he's not willing to take a 2-way, that extra near million dollars goes a long way in the UFA market this offseason. It's not smart practice to throw a million dollars worth of cap space away.

And again, anyone who says Omark is just guy with nice youtube clips doesn't know what he is talking about, if thats what you were implying.
He's not a billionaire because he wastes money on everything that comes along.

...and thanks for your input on the second part. Do you know something I don't that is relevant to north american hockey? There are countless examples of pretty numbers in Europe that mean nothing out here (Horcoff being one that hits home pretty hard)
