Whatever they want, do the opposite. Decision made. Boom.
It will be 2-3 seasons before the Oilers are "actually" competing with the Canucks.

I would take him.

I think at worst he's a no.7 defenseman on a healthy team. 12-14 minutes. Next season looks like:

Whitney-Gilbert
Peckham-Petry
Smid-Foster
Parent

Where's the harm?

As far as OKC depth goes, if the Oilers claim Parent - Petry would go down at some point.
