Right. Because Oilers management
has a good eye for spotting NHL talent and putting together great teams.
Everyone knows that Omark wasn't going to crack the roster this year because he isn't as good as Eberle, Yakupov, or Hemsky (arguable -- post-injury Hemsky is a pale shadow of his former self) and doesn't have the size and complete lack of offensive skill they demand in their 4th line players. Doesn't mean he's junk. Someone will take a chance on him. He'll get some more games in the NHL. Not with the Oilers, though, for the reason NeautralZone gave above.
