I agree Gagner had a couple decent plays but dont get too carried away. He made a simple pass that Barker finished. Omark has made 20 passes like that this year the only difference was someone burying it. Gagner still looks slow out there and lost quite often.

@ Kodiak. The difference being that Gagner froze the defender and made a nice soft pass putting his teamate in a high potential scoring area where Omark would have done two or three spin-o-ramas, finally delivering a 100 mile an hour pass on his teamates backhand in a poor scoring position.

What do you mean by "don't get too carried away"? Gagner is the more proven player over Omark, and is a couple of years younger. Gagner will play at least the 2nd toughs this year and will succeed once he gets his legs going again. I hate the need for Oiler fans to make "Goats" out of good players like Gagner and Gilbert.

Knock it off.

Wow . . .that just happened!! Goaltending again was solid even with Ave's crashing the net constantly.

Dman - Sutton/Smid/Gilbert continue to amaze although I hope Brendan realizes Sutton is 6'7" and not suspension for the hit on the Rookie. Peckman the only weak link with another give away early on but Dubie saving him this time.

and finally . . .

The Respond Goal - how long has it been since we had that type of goal 18 seconds later! Smyth (3A) and Horcs were the differnce here to take all the pressure off in period 3.

this is a fun ride to be on . . .

I don’t mean to be argumentative, it’s pretty hypocritical for people to say stop hating Gagner, but at the same time people basically trash Omark?

Another thing how much more proven is Gagner this year to Omark? 1 point.

This is where you throw stats down proving Gagner over the last so and so years has produced so and so points! Is younger and will develop into a super hero.

As for trending a player, if that was the case Horcoff would not have struggled so bad that year and would have had a 70 point season. Fact is nobody knows season to season how a player will play. Case in point Lupal and Kessel.

For the record, as a rabid Oilers fan! I like Gagner a lot! I also want Omark to succeed for the team! The more offense the Oilers can create the better it is for the team! I say both go out a score 60 points each!

As a season ticket holder I’ve watched all the games and can honestly say the difference between the two players is negligible at best.

Until tonight, secondary scoring was our team's biggest concern. Doesn't it make sense for the Omark and Gagner crowds to unite, and demand we try to get them both going? How much longer are we going to pretend that eight minutes of Ben Eager is helping this team win?

If may take a second to hate Eager, Petrell and Jones duplicate his hitting and Peckham and Sutton duplicate his fighting, and all four of those guys do other things. Why do we need him? More Gagner! More Omark!

@They're $hittie

Who's swayed by flash?

With Omark, it's obvious he has elite skill with the puck, so it would be stupid to not want that kind of player to succeed with your team.

Maybe the benching will put his head on straight, which is the only issue with this kid. If he wasn't such a hard worker, the haters would have a better case.

Personally, I don't see what Lander brings to the table to warrant a starting spot over Gagner and Omark, other than being a center.

Gagner gets points at a rate about 50% better then Omark has despite being younger. He also has scored goals at about 3x the rate Omark has. He has done this over the past couple of years while playing tougher minutes.

I would like to see Omark have success here as well, but you simply lose credibility when you suggest that the difference between Gagner and Omark is negligible.

Are you simply looking at 4 games by a guy who came back from injury and assessing that as his value to the team?

@book¡e

Omark has played 56 games in the NHL, and only the 28 game stint in OKC playing in North America.

Gagner has played 4 years here.

I don't see how the two are comparable by age as it relates to NHL career performance.

Russ - agreed, the reason that Omark is still here is because he has a history of producing in the SEL and KHL, but he had a lot of opportunity last year and looked pretty lost on a lot of nights. He has his moments and even his games where he looks like he could be a solid NHLer.
