I don't think it's personal. If we suddenly had an opening, I'm sure he'd get a shot.

There's just no room on the roster with the set of wingers we already have. Yakupov, Hall, Eberle, Hemsky, Hartikainen, Paajarvi(?) are already ahead for top two/three lines. And Omark won't succeed as a 3rd/4th liner on a team that needs beef, not dangles.
