Not to mention a dismal GA record that year.

This was a one trick pony without many tricks.

You know as fans of the Oilers that were used to absolute dreck when so many welcome the *contribution* of a player like Linus Omark.
Its still production. From the 2007 draft, Omarks short, but semi productive NHL season ranks him ahead of almost all 4th rounders, half of the 2nd and 3rd rounders and a couple of 1st rounders.

He was nothing special, and Im not trying to pump his tires. But Omark was a successful 4th round pick.

His contributions, even in subjective meaningless games, are still contributions at the NHL level. He was a .5 ppg rookie, similar to Barstchi, Monahan, Vorcek, Turris, JVR etc etc all put up in their rookie seasons
