I'm not saying that his contract hasn't hindered the Oilers, but looking forward to this season and next he can be of use until a better option is available.
Well, aside from the fact he isn't effective at it, and hasn't been for years. He's 35 and declining significantly every year, he isn't on pace to start rebounding anytime soon.

The overall point is that keeping him around past this season will effectively hinder the Oilers from having to go out and find a better option, they simply aren't going to be proactive about it.
