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"
he certainly didn't contribute positively on the second line. he sunk the line from a GA perspective. Omark was a horrible hockey player here and while an insignificant piece sure contributed to the team being even worse that year.
