Seriously?? this is your metric for measuring MPS? Playing time with the Oilers? For most of those 135 GP he has played on the worst hockey team in the NHL. (with no exagerration)
That earns him zero credibility.

I hope the best for him. I think with this skating ability and size (though he is terrified of body contact) he still has some decent value for another hockey team. I say cut the kid loose if it earns us a half decent gritty 3rd liner who can play at the NHL level.

I would be shocked if MPS ever reguarly plays NHL hockey in the top 6 of a decent hockey team.
