Definitely agree... a player has to be able to play the role they are asked to.

Omark has more offensive talent than many Oilers... he also has more ego and "knows he's good". That's a dangerous combo. He's neither defensively good enough nor seems to have the ability to be humble enough to listen to coaches and play a role they ask him to... even if it's outside his "comfort zone".

I was (and actually still am) hoping he can make an NHL career for himself somewhere... but I think he has to take as much blame for the position he's in as those that the he feels held him back and have a vendetta against him.
