As is, he's a middle 6 offensive player with no defense. Forgive me for thinking how he could improve and help our team, not how can he help a different team
Even if I wished it were otherwise, I think it's perfectly clear that Omark and the Oilers are through with each other. As such, his only value to this club is in whatever trading away his rights can get us. He maximizes that value by showing his potential as an elite playmaker/scorer, not by trying to develop the skills of a penalty killer/third line plug.
