The Edmonton Oilers have placed defenseman Mark Fayne on waivers for the purpose of assignment to Bakersfield. The MacT era continues to look like a disaster.
The craziest thing about this move, to me, is that we were all fairly satisfied when Craig MacTavish signed Mark Fayne to a four year deal last summer. Fayne was supposed to come in and help stabilize the defense, but hasn’t really been close to living up to that billing. To see him placed on waivers for the purpose of assignment can be called nothing short of a failure.

Fayne on waivers. If he goes to minors, #Oilers would have $10.425 million in minors and Ference $3.25 in pressbox/IR. Chia signed none.

Chiarelli obviously sees players very differently than former GM Craig MacTavish. How long can they work side-by-side? Tick, tick, tick . .

If Mark Fayne clears would not surprise me if Nikita Nikitin gets a look back in Edmonton at some point
