The question is whether there are players on other teams in this league who possess obvious skill, but have become dispensable either due to their club's depth or have been chastised by their coaching staff or fan-base due to being unable to put it altogether.
I'd imagine Omark is going to want the opportunity to make an NHL squad this fall and if he is unable to do so, he is no longer waiver exempt. Candidates for a potential return would likely be in the same position.
A bag of pucks. Used ones with chips in them. Omark will be back in Europe next season.
