I'm a fan of Fistric, and I don't really want him to go. He's fun to watch, but he's never really proven to be more than a 3rd pair D. His mobility makes it questionable that he can be a Top 4. Last year, I actually though he was better picking when to rush and moving the puck.

Omark has questionable upside as well, but I think he has more value than Fistric.

If you look at them now, not considering potential, a borderline Top 6 winger with a ton of skill is worth more than a physical 5th or 6th D, IMO. For potential, a skilled Top 6 winger who can score and setup teammates is more valuable that a physical 2nd pair D, IMO. They're close in value, and maybe Edmonton's desire for size could make them do a one for one, but Omark's ability and potential is more valuable.
