The good news is that we'll all get a good look at Omark at the World Championships (April 24 - May 10 in Switzerland). If Omark is at all credible, though, be prepared for the waves of laughter and derision from the hockey world. "Can you believe that the Oilers, I mean the Oilers of all teams, tried to play hardball with this kid and pushed him to the KHL?" etc., etc. ad nauseum. In that way, I hope he's just another epic fail.
I hope he lights it up, leads the tournament in scoring and exposes this organizatinon for the joke it is.
