Omark told recently in a interview that there were 3 offers for him in the summer and oilers declined them all. He said also that he think that oilers was afraid that he would succed in another team. I think that the offers wasnt what they expected to get when they qualified him.

I don't think Joe's statement is that far off. And you are right too, they certainly wouldn't take any lowball offers. The unfortunate part for Omark is that the Oilers aren't in any rush to deal his rights and Omark's window to play hockey in the NHL is getting smaller by the day.
