Wild, totally unwarranted crazy butt crackpot theories:
  • It's just a coincidence that he's "tweaked something"
  • He failed the physical and so the Oilers did this as a response
  • He was originally intended to be in this trade, but Dallas ultimately didn't want him
  • They intend to pass him through waivers but they want to wait until after camp to do it so that other teams have finished picking up FAs first (but if this is the case, why not run him with the rest in camp anyway?)
My own baseless speculation is that Peckham came in out of shape, just because he's had some problems with that in the past and there would probably be even less motivation to stay in shape with an extended lockout. But who knows, hopefully he's going somewhere with a prospect and a pick in return for a decent player.
