How so? Omark isn't even playing for the Oilers affiliate. Trading him for Filatov, if he comes over, is just a change of scenery for two players that need it. Omark might get a better shot in Ottawa, hell he might even want to come back if he gets traded there. I doubt he comes back to Edmonton at this point.

Let's not pretend he's some highly sought after player either, Steve couldn't trade him this summer to anyone. Now that he's playing better, you might as well get him for something or do whatever is next for a player you qualified just to keep around.

Trade rumors swirled about Omark for months. A restricted free agent this past summer, the Oilers qualified his rights rather than risk losing him for nothing via free agency. GM Steve Tambellini shopped him throughout the summer, but couldn't find any takers.
