It doesn't matter if you think that Omark is a top 6 guy or not. There are only a couple of scenarios in which Omark will break top 6 in the Oilers. Injury to one of the above mentioned players, trade of one of the above mentioned players or if one of them goes on a huge slump over 20-30 games or so... Then he could possibly get a chance at top 6 minutes but he'd need perform right from the start.
Last scenario, and the only one which I think is most likely amongst these, is that he works his way back on to the 3rd line, starts producing consistently and shows dedication and discipline in his play. That is how it should be in my opinion. If he becomes a solid 3rd liner producing points and contributing to the team then he will be able to move up in the next couple of years.
I really hope he does work himself back into the Oilers line up but let's not live in the illusion that he can come in and push out one of our current top wingers. If you think that you'll be disappointed.
