You call him entitled.

When he played with Paajarvi, Gagner, hartikainen he was .876 PPG.
You know despite being an Oilers fan i feel for Linus and think some of those stretches of NHL play that were less than stellar say more about the Oil than Omark. This guy has been quality, a star even, at every level short of the NHL. And even then in the NHL he's had some great stretches (as you aptly pointed out). I really do think given a shot Omark is going to be a player, he's just too talented. I've never seen anything more hyperbolized than Omarks defensive game, yet everyone turns a blind eye to how exceptionally talented he is with the puck. Watching him in the AHL it looked like he was playing against kids, on a totally different level.
