Ironically the team that probably needs Parent the most is the team that can't claim him. Lamoriello is probably pulling what's left of his hair off his head, whilst praying that someone does him a favor and claims Rolston.
Petry makes a million dollars when on the big club aswell. Claiming Parent and sending Petry down would actually be a good thing salary wise for the Oilers. They need good Dmen on the farm team. At the moment its looking more like an ECHL team especially with brutal goaltending.

Claiming Parent and waiving Struds or Foster would be the 'Right' move but unlikely to happen.
