Some oiler fans forget fast, when they have other prospects to dream about.
Omark isnt worth much but much more then some people think. Why bother to qualify him and even extend the deadline!? I think Oilers wants a second pick for him and that delays the deal, player for player isnt a option because it only give us a worse player back.Omark was on pace for 43 p his 1 st season, he drawed penaltys second on the team after Hall(30+ games played) and was the best oiler the last 12 games of the season +- and in points, first star 2 or 3 games. He isnt easy to fit in because he isnt a checking liner or a 4th. Omarks defence has strongly improved, but he are so offensive minded to create so he stays to long deep in the offensive zone so he comes behind in backchecking some times. With prv its the opposite he seems scared to get busted so he are almost on his way home before getting in to offensive zone. A mix of both would be perfect but can be fixed with right linemates and development. The team who takes on omark takes no risk if giving up a 3-4 pick and in return can improve their pp and keeping the puck in offensive zone longer. His second season isnt much to evaluate he made the team, got 5 games with stonehand belanger and a stonecold prv then sent down got footinjured, went to team sweden and hit the mononukleos. I think the guy has it, to take a regular spot in the Nhl hes has the drive,skills and confident to do so.
