Two unfunniest guys in Edmonton. I realize that isn't a word but I'm using it here.

And this is why they are on radio lol.

I don't mind their morning show as it's something to listen to, often with some laughs.

But i couldn't make it thru the video.

To each his own I guess. I like Dustin & Wil and enjoy the Post Show Show more often than not. This one was closer to amusing than it was to hilarious on the comedy scale. Principe's corny routines and tired puns do not even register as amusing to me.

I don't even get the joke here. I'm guessing it something along the lines that they won't miss Omark so they want act sarcastic by saying the opposite. If that's the case... yeah, whatever. If you want to use sarcasm to take pot shots or making biting criticism then Omark would be about 100th on my list of Oilers related topics to tackle.

^Omark has his fanboys though....got into it pretty good with another poster on another site about how he was right saying Omark is an improvement over some on the 3rd and 4th line and therefore should have been given more of a shot up here than he was, and how he is right and I was wrong no matter what and.....of course, this guy is whining on his soapbox after he had already been traded !

Thanks Soli. Sounds like the late-rounder is in the bag.

He's right though.
Omark is a better hockey player than a lot of the trash we've seen rotated through our bottom 6 in the last 3 years.

Prendergast...

Could have taken Pacioretty or Perron with the traded up pick. Or kept them and taken PK + anyone. Poor Buffalo fans. Can't believe he got another NHL job.

at his small size though, can he ever play effectively on the bottom 2 lines? is he physical enough and would he have scored enough?

No. And no. You're right.

And it should be obvious to anyone who had watched him.

Oh well. It's not a huge deal. We were overloaded at his position and so he fell to the wayside. On successful teams there are lots of players like this who don't get a "fair" chance.

I wish Omark the best! If by some miracle he actually thrives in Buffalo I just hope that Oiler fans don't start ripping MacT for the awful trade.
On successful teams? Like Oilers?

I personally don't care if he does well or not. Is not my friend or family. Has a job and makes plenty of money.

Wasn't helping the oilers so glad he is gone. Opens up space on Barons to try someone else.

Omark has shown he's a great puck possession player on every team he's played, except the Oilers...

So, IMO, if he were to play for a strong defensive team he'd probably be a great 3rd line player.

Sample size, what is that? I'm not even an Omark fan boy, but at least he scores at .5PPG pace in the NHL. That's better than pretty much every 4th liner in the league, FYI.

I am sort of happy he is on the third line and not doing too much-- but when he scores his first goal certain people will be posting her and doing a told ya so dance
