Linus Omark in a one-for-one deal

Basically a 'Dog Days of Summer' thread.

I'm going to point out that this isn't an "Omark sucks" or "Oilers garbage" thread. It is very apparent from all perspectives that he isn't good enough to supplant any of Edmonton's top six wingers and that he isn't defensively sound enough to make any sense on their bottom six.

The question is whether there are players on other teams in this league who possess obvious skill, but have become dispensable either due to their club's depth or have been chastised by their coaching staff or fan-base due to being unable to put it altogether.

I'd imagine Omark is going to want the opportunity to make an NHL squad this fall and if he is unable to do so, he is no longer waiver exempt. Candidates for a potential return would likely be in the same position.

Fire away.

Linus Omark for Aaron Palushaj or Alexander Avtsin or someone along those lines.

If it's one for one, we'd want a mid round pick.

Ottawa will give you a 4th round pick. If you want a player, I'll offer Eric Condra.

I think you're the only one thinking he's good enough for the top six Nacho, ha ha. Where would Omark fit in the top six? He would never be ahead of:

RNH
Gagner
Hall
Eberle
Yakupov
Hemsky
Smyth

And he hasn't shown that he can play bottom six. I think he is done in North America, let him go light it up in the KHL. He's better suited to that game.

The way i look at it is hickey or muzzin can move up to nhl Omark goes to manchester to learn defence competes next year with pearson king and clifford for 2 and 3rd lw spots Hes got talent for the shootouts that can help in years to come if he can learn defense

He won't do another full year of AHL hockey, though.

ok the you say to him he will be the frist call up when a forward gets hurt if your defense has improved enuff to play in the nhl. With penner gagne and williams playing for the kings its only a matter of time till one get hurt.
