I'm sure this was the deal at the start of the season. Put your time in Linus, if you have a good year and we can't call you up to the big team, we will trade you.

Both the player and the GM lived up to the deal.

Personally, I think it's a good sign. It drives a stake into the small/skilled player concept that Oilers have dug themselves a hole with. Finally, the era of the Youtube player in Edmonton seems to be passing.

If you can't play 5 on 5, you can't play.

Empty slots bring in new opportunity. I'm all for it. Linus was not going to make it. Sure it was a weak return, but I think this was more about living up to a gentleman's agreement from the preseason. It was MacT's message that the small & skilled era is done in Edmonton. It's about time.
