Not sure if I agree with you on that one.

From a simple points perspective, his .5 ppg certainly helped us. Even if he did collect some points in meaningless games, he still did it against legit NHL teams fighting for playoff spots. The meaningless games argument can also be made against Hall,Yakupov, Huberdeau, Tavares, Stamkos,Duchene etc etc who all collected points in meaningless games to the end of the season and some point in their initial 3 seasons

From an advanced stats POV, his CorsiOn was the highest amongst all regular forwards, and #2 for all regular players.

His RelCorsi (Corsi in relation to the rest of his team) was 8.2. Meaning he played better than a majority of the other forwards (in terms of shot differentials). For perspective, Hall had a 10.5 and Eberle 8.5. Both have slightly lower CorsiOn numbers as well

Even though the team was horrible, Omark was slightly less horrible
