I'm not a huge Omark supporter and never saw him as a long term oiler considering our team....but unless I'm crazy, I'm looking at an nhl team almost guaranteed to finish bottom 3. A team that's only saving grace is our "potential" even though we rarely see evidence of it.

And (even though it's not what the oilers need) I see the goal (and point) leader on our farm team traded for essentially nothing. Maybe call him up and give him another chance? Not to "make the team" but to up his value's not like it could get much worse. And maaaaaaaybe he would have surprised us (unlikely).

It doesn't matter I guess at the end of the day. When I talk about upping his trade value, it was by a round or 2 so not the biggest of losses regardless.
You're not going to up his trade value by recalling him. We're talking about a guy who already cleared waivers. They gave him away for nothing. It's a pick conditional on Omark making their pro team for, likely, the rest of the year. He'd be back in Switzerland come the new year if MacT didn't unload him.

Good enough for your gut?
