Word yesterday that Linus Omark is leaving the KHL after one season. The youtube superstar might be headed for Edmonton, although it will be a two-way deal (as required by the CBA) and time in Okla City is possible.
Should Omark sign with the Oilers, it would add another minute man to the group. The idea that the big club might start 10-11 with all of Sam Gagner, Andrew Cogliano, Patrick O’Sullivan, Mike Comrie, Robert Nilsson and Omark seems unreasonable.
However, Omark’s Desjardins’ NHLE suggests he is NHL ready. The plot thickens.
