He's talented with some holes in his game. Really is a guy that needed a really offensive role to thrive and he wasn't going to get that in Edmonton with so many other players of a similar ilk around.

Edmonton's once favoured son rides off to turn a franchise around. Godspeed, you'll always be in our hearts.

return sucks.

Should have claimed luke adams from them when he got sent down the first time IMO

But not sure where he would fit on our NHL roster if at all.

Sorry guys, exams are taking me off my game.

i think he had more to him than the other fodder that fan boys attached themselves to (schremp, r.nilsson, patrick osulli who all 3 combined ended up being worth a cup of coffee after leaving edmonton)

that being said i think his ability to achieve was a 4th rd pick worthy potential... but if you need that contract space a 6th isnt bad. Plus i dont think he was doing the oil any favors being in this organization.

I think the Swedes on our team got along with him, but fans never really seemed to get an impression that there was any camaraderie (or lack thereof) the same way we did with Hall/Eberle, for example.

I agree with your original post though - probably a low risk, high reward scenario for the Sabres. He may have more opportunity up front with you guys. I don't think Omark will be a **** disturber in the dressing room, but I do think he's likely had enough with playing in the minors and will publicly voice it if you guys send him down.

The fact that Omark but the "O" in "HOPE" makes me think we were a little over confident in our one dimensional band of midgets.

It is not like he was ever going to get into a game here. At least we don't have to hear about Omark trades any more. Now people can stop adding him into all the big trades

Good luck Linus.

OKC is now a barren wasteland in terms of offense.

He's definitely a player who will speak his mind, so he's a rarity in that regard. A bit of an entitled attitude though - he seemed to think he was just good enough for the NHL and never seemed willing to put in any time in the minors.
huh?

I'm indifferent that we traded Omark. But was his value that low? I would have expected a higher round pick than that.

Not disappointed he is gone...but quite disappointed in the return.

Well, nobody wanted him on the way down for free. How much is a team supposed to pay for a long shot guy that is UFA and will likely be in the KHL next season? I wish him luck, but if I am a GM, I'm looking at the one small skilled forward that wasn't good enough to make a pathetic Oilers squad.

It's not much different than Schremp.

i think his ceiling was a 4th, timing likely made it a 6th.

a trade involving a 6th round pick is more entertaining than watching the actual team.

this is the oilers
