The kid never had a chance. We expected more than he could deliver. We just didn't give him a chance. He had a game or two with the top 2 lines, but other than that he was on the 3rd or 4th line.

I am sick of hearing Whitney, and especially Hemsky involved in trade discussions such as these. People think we are going to give away Hemsky (1/2nd line winger, and Whitney a 1/2nd line D for scrubs). If you want these guys, it's going to cost you:

V. Flip + I. White or B. Smith, and a prospect like Jarnkrok or Sproul

For

Hemsky, Whitney, and Omark.

I'd think Detroit would just need to wait for the season to begin and they'll be able to grab Omark off of waivers. If they're worried someone else would grab him, I would think a 6th or 7th round pick would get it done. I don't see Omark being an Oiler after the season begins. Too much negative history

If your being fair to both teams a 4th is what he would be worth. He is good at what he does and if put in a position to succeed he can produce( he never was in EDM). The risk of a 4th is easy to bear for the potential gains for DET.

This would be a win/win for both teams since there is zero chance Omarks busts in on the oilers at wing.

I'm confused as to why you put White or Smith and Jarnkrok or Sproul. The players in those sets are not close at all in value...either way, awful deal for Detroit.

Omark was very good at drawing penalties and playing keep away in the offensive zone for a good stretch...and did make some nice plays...

but I'm pretty sure Renney would eat his hat if the Wings traded for him...or Omark would eat his hat...there would hat eating...

i dont see it happening. rioght now Omark doesnt even cost us a contract and we own his rights and can let him rot. we have no reason to deal him even if we arent using him. he could be a piece to a package somewhere else.

I hate omark but its not costing us anything to hold on to him. he isnt even a contract lol. zero need to deal him.

If im tambo i sit on the rights to omark. i dont care. a late pick isnt worth my attention.

to be fair I wouldn't give more than a 5th for Abdelkader either.

Pretty cruel way to handle your players. His value is pretty much zero, and if he wants to have a chance with another team and that team was willing to part with 5-7th rounder, it would be common courtesy to just let him go.

Hockey is a business, tough to agree with him but its the truth.

Done, we need Grit in our bottom 6 and Abdelkader would add just that.

Even with as well as they have played together would think the Wings would hope Filppula or Franzen gets along even better playing out on left wing than Omark. Is it worth a low round pick? Maybe, but not if they aren't interested in really giving him a chance and he gets benched by Babs at the first available moment all the time.
Pretty much, Renney didn't care much for him (whether it was his play or how he came across is left to the eye of the beholder). IMO he would be a decent and cheap replacement for Hudler.

No chance Omark would play in Detroit's top six. Seems like a pointless acquisition, considering he's not a 4th line player.

perhaps cruel... but a good GM wouldnt bother doing anything that doesnt help the team. We arent paying him, he isnt costing a contract...we will discuss him when his return value becomes something that is worth talking about.

Also he isnt one of our players...we just own his rights. He has a big mouth and wanted to play overseas. let him.
There is always UFA a few years from now.

But his value wont go up, it just kills even the little tiny bit of chance ever seeing Omark in the NHL.

you see, as GM of the Oilers, my job would be for the oilers. If he cant provide help now...why would i give him the chance to help another team with nothing of usefulness back?

hes not going anywhere unless he works his value up. If Omark wants a trade he better get his value to more than one team offering a worthless 7th rounder. They shouldnt even have a draft beyond 5 rounds. pathetic.

If he doesnt get his value up? too bad for him.
As GM of the Oilers i better be focussed on the team rather than some guy who only beaked off. If a GM ever thinks of a player who hasnt contributed anything... he should be tarred, feathered, sued for every cent earned, tatooed as a fraud and his family run out of town.
GM = employee of the team not some half wit player.

6th rounder would be the most I would offer for Omark, and that might be too much
