Good interview with Omark and I love what I hear, his goal is NHL, nothing else.

"In the top division (SEL, Sweden) several clubs has exited finished bid to Linus Omark and he could have continued in Switzerland.

But Omark has declined everything in Europe. The NHL is his goal.

- I've told my agent that when I'm finished with the NHL then I can go for Europe. But I know that I'm not finished there (NHL).

Linus Omark is determined to play in the NHL this fall.

- It has been all along, there's nothing strange about it. I had a great first season. Then I got injured last year and it ruined the whole season. Then I had intended to sign but then it became lockout and then I had to take a year in Europe. Switzerland I thought was best being a great league and I went for it. I got to play with (Henrik) Zetterberg and (Damien) Brunner and it's a great league, said Omark.

"The goal the whole time NHL"

- It was a fun year, but my goal has always been to go to the NHL.

Edmonton still owns the right of him in the NHL.

- You can make the most of the situation. If they sign me, they do. It's mostly up to them. I am ready for anything just I get to play there."

In Swedish:

A very funny Google translation. I love how Luleň is being translated to Dubai and "crap stimulating".
