I agree with your post in theory, just not to the level of the "Just another nail in the coffin" comment.
The best thing for both parties is to put him on re-entry waivers and eat the $2.7 mil for the next 2 years, it's not like the Oilers will have cap issues for the next 2 years and we can finally put the drama behind us while Souray gets his wish to play for another team.
For the Oilers to be vindictive in this situation will accomplish nothing except to keep this black could over the organization, it's time to move on completely and re-entry waivers is the best (only) way to do that.
