Get him healthy enough for a few games in April, come up with some explanation of why that time is different and he's better, ship him the **** out.
Agreed. Some guys are just injury prone. And this particular guy also happens to play a style that puts a bullseye on his back WHILE putting him in harms way quite often. Never liked the re-up.

If Oates really believed what he said, that's troubling. Sounds like he was trying to justify the move. Someone with an injury history and recent surgery is a prime candidate for re-injury as a result of being weakened due to increased demand, especially in back to back days.
