He didn't cause a media circus when he didn't make the team out of camp and was traded like both camps agreed upon.
You miss a lot of stuff you don't want to see.

So he didn't light the world on fire in Buffalo, but how many games did you watch I wonder? No **** he played the Oilers hard, he probably wanted to stick it to them (but pretty much all former players do) so not sure what your point is there.

And now because he wants to go back and play close to home he's a crying whiny baby?

Holy crap. The guy didn't succeed. If he didn't have so many rabid supporters coming here and posting maybe the board wouldn't be so hard on him, your posts about him going back with his tail between his legs and crying to mommy are so petulant.
More drama. He played like **** in the NHL, which was supposedly the league he wanted to try to accomplish something in. He wasn't any good with the Oilers and was apparently worse in Buffalo.

Glad he's gone really.

As far as the point about trying to stick it to the Oilers it was hilarious how ineffectual he was at actually doing that.

Raffi Torres scored a Hat Trick against the Oilers one game. Put Eberle in lala land in another.

Omark couldn't even make an impact as hard as he wanted to. It was funny if anything to see that. Couldn't even get it done against the team he had wanted to stick it to.
