I think the Oilers look at as a win-win situation. If he clears, he can work on his game down in OKC and come back up with no risk of loosing him. If he gets claimed, they open up a contract spot, which can be pretty valuable if a multi player trade comes up.
I don't exactly agree with not having guys in the PB. We have had issues before with getting guys in from OKC in the past. Given our climate anyone can get sick at any moment, why not carry an extra player just in case? Granted right now it doesn't matter as we don't play until Saturday, but going forward we should have a backup plan.
