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.
The potential harm is that you might want that roster spot for a 4 or 5 mil D via UFA/trade this summer. Leaving something like:

Whitney-Gilbert
New Guy-Peckham
Smid-Foster
Petry

instead of the D you've listed above.
