It may not have made a difference, but when you have a team with a Billionaire owner looking to chince you on thousands of dollars, that doesn't send a very good signal IMO.
Tell me BBO, why should the Oilers nor any NHL team guarantee a spot to a rookie. It's not the way it works. Omark had to earn his spot and it appears he didn't want to do that.
