Is Omark your son that you're defending Omark in order to criticize the Oilers?
Him demanding an NHL spot was wrong, however demanding an AHL max salary wasn't because of what he could be giving up if he didn't make the team, end of story. It might still be in everyone's best interest that he signed in the KHL unless he tears it up there and gets offered even more $ in the near future. The NHL may need to change some things around or this could be a continuing issue with the KHL.
