Dawes is nice to have around if your a contender and you need a PP guy if injuries happen but in Edmonton he serves pretty much zero purpose.
They're clearly not tanking next year, SS.

They've already gotten their 4th line grinder that can win draws. Now they need a 3RW that doesn't hurt you defensively, can score a few points and keeps one of the kids from playing bigger minutes. It also gives Horcoff a RW to play with that has some offense and can skate with him.

At 885k, it's a little-reward/no-risk situation.
