The team has 50 contract spots and only 23 roster spots... by definition... some won't work out. Sure there will be some that never develop into anything but some surprises as well.

I wouldn't crucify the guy already and say it's a waste of one of those 50 spots. MANY players in those 50 spots on ALL the 30 NHL teams never get more than a cup of coffee... and many don't even see that. Not a big deal in the long run.

At worst he's filler for the next half decade in OKC... so be it, not every player develops into an NHL player but there's always the chance he might.
