Oilers GM Craig MacTavish argued that Leon Draisaitl's 37-game (not including scratches) stint in Edmonton this season wasn't a waste.
"The games he played here are going to be really valuable," said MacTavish. "He leaves here knowing what he has to do to be more impactful. And he's going to get a great experience there. I think this is going to be extremely important for his development. I don't view his 40 games here as time wasted at all. I think it’s time well spent for him." MacTavish might be right, but that doesn't address where the criticism of his handling of Draisaitl lies. The issue is that by using Draisaitl in 37 games, the Oilers burned the first season of his entry-level contract and that might come back to bite them later. Had they limited him to nine games before returning him to the WHL then they would have delayed his first taste of restricted free agency. Jan 8 - 9:10 AM
