Its a joke you would even make the comparison to the above listed players.
To show that his rookie season was pretty good. And to even get a season like that from a 4th round pick is a successful pick. Yes Omark was older, but its still their first NHL season, and Monahan was a 6th OA pick.

Im not exactly sure why we have to drag this guy through the mud. He had marginal NHL success, was determined to try and make the show, and was never a locker room issue besides some wild assumptions by Omark haters. Not sure what else youd want from a 4th round pick

He has run his course in the NHL, did the best he could, and contributed positively to the Oilers for a season and to their farm team for 2. He is not a "bust" or someone we should point to and say "the Oilers cant develop players, Omark is a failure"
