Me too. People seeing this move as bad on management floor me.

Management didn't see Omark as an NHLer. Omark saw himself as an NHLer, requested a trade and would have left for Europe if he was stuck in the A.

If the team didn't trade him they would have gotten zero return. Trading him to the worst team in the league is the best chance at some sort of return.

Haven't seen the condition that triggers the pick, but I guess it would games played the rest of the season. Maybe 10 games triggers the pick?
