For all you know the asset wasn't wasted, maybe MacT or Tambo before him tried to trade him or include him in a package.
He has a whopping 17 points in 34 games career high for Merrimack. I don't know much about NCAA so I'm not sure if Merrimack is a top flight hockey school or not, but one of the HF Oil posters was a lady who payed special attention to NCAA prospects (can't remember her screen name atm) and she said the same things about Bigos. He's a big kid, but he is not a good skater.

The Oilers don't need size that can't play against legit NHL players, this obsession with size is getting old.
I think you mean Caley?

I don't disagree with your point of view. The next question from that perspective is why continue to draft these types of players each year.

As far as the asset wasted, trading him wasn't the only option. They could have signed him. Not sure why you would say whopping 17 pts in 34 games. 0.5 PPG sounds pretty good for a big poor skating dman.
