Maybe it's just me but the presence of Petrell in the Oilers' lineup isn't going to make or break the team as much as depth on a somewhat injury-prone blueline is going to. Teubert and Potter aren't even 3rd pairing D-men at this point, they belong in the AHL.
I don't think anyone is disagreeing with you that Teubert and Potter are horrible options, but unless you want meatheads like Eager killing penalties, you keep Petrell. Like it or not we have limited options.
