Edmonton Oilers' GM Craig MacTavish has finally done it, he has successfully traded Linus Omark. Omark is a once highly touted Oilers' prospect who was soon surpassed by even younger and more talented prospects as the Oilers hit the jackpot with three first overall picks in a row. Omark's performance in the NHL never took off, while he has been the AHL Oklahoma City Baron's top scorer.
Linus Omark is still unhappy, and still more than willing to talk to the Swedish media. After playing a lockout year in Switzerland, the Oilers and Omark appeared to have mended fences, or at the very least perhaps new GM Craig MacTavish decided to try his hand at working with Linus Omark. Regardless of what happened in the background, Omark agreed to a one year two way contract and began the season in the AHL with the Oklahoma City Barons. But that’s where he’s stayed (aside from one NHL game) despite highlight reel goals, game winning goals, repeated multiple goal games and a lot of buzz. And why?
