I have trouble believing he has no value in this league.

Ryan Rishaugh(sp?) is reporting this on twitter.

Wow...didn't think his value would be that low. The waivers thing seems to have worked out for us so far, I just hope they don't intend on putting him through re-entry waivers.

That would be ridiculous. Will close in a few minutes if you can't come up with a source via PM or a link.

I have a funny feeling this means we have our eye on a free agent, as this is the easiest way to get rid of salary without having to take any on.

LOL

The guy seriously had no value whatsoever in the league? I find that hard to believe.

Oh well.

WTH? So if he clears we pay him his full salary in OKC?

Who will do us an amazing favor and get this clown off our team?

What this tells me is that the Oilers don't badly need the cap space and don't want to be forced into taking on another headache.

I'm wondering what the plan is here.

You have to think he'll clear. Then what?

Wow, you think Souray would have some value!!!

It seems the only way the Oilers could trade him is; if we get an over-paid contract in return.

I have a feeling there's more to this... Either a lead up to a trade or cap space for some signings...

Welcome to the cap world. His contract is just too rich given the risk (injury proneness etc).

That should mean no one is interested in claiming him either, though, since it's better to at least ship out a contract as part of the transaction.

My guess? Oilers have a deal they can make that will see them take back ample salary, so Tambellini thought he'd put him on waivers and see if anyone would take him for nothing in return. If he clears, maybe we see a deal shortly thereafter. (Sort of like how Anaheim put Mathieu Schneider on waivers two years ago, then when he went un-claimed, traded him to LA for a couple players).

I don't get this at all. There must have been some offers for him and we don't need the cap space. This seems like a spite move by the Oilers imo
