This morning the following tweet was sent out from Linus Omark's official Twitter account.
@realoilfan I live to show that the "two" are wrong. But I really hope edm let me have a chance in another nhl team— Linus Omark(@Limpanomark) April 11, 2012
That tweet has now been up for three hours so it's probably safe to assume that Omark's account hasn't been hacked and that Omark, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, has made one of the most public trade requests in recent memory.
Omark split his time this season between Edmonton and Oklahoma City and was most recently recalled on March 5 but dressed in only nine of the Oilers last 17 games. Given how Omark was utilized over the last weeks of the season it became increasingly clear that, for whatever reason, he didn't have a future with the Oilers and that his time in Edmonton was quickly coming to an end. This public shot at the Oilers certainly takes that to a new level.
