There is no point to unprotect Wright and protect Ralph, just so that if we pick a player up we could drop Ralph to the unprotected list.

There has to be something else to it.
I'm not positive but I think if Wright goes through the waiver draft unclaimed, he can be sent to Toronto without having to clear again. So the line of thinking would possibly be that he has a better chance to clear waivers now, then he would say in a month from now when injuries may have possibly forced someone's hand.

Or, maybe he's just crappy enough that the Oilers don't give 2 whoots about keeping him or not.
