We have J.F. that's in a position to, you know, he's got to get himself cleared to play, naturally, but that would be a spot that we would use there. I think he's ready to go full contact. We're contemplating now if we should allow that to start in Oklahoma City as a conditioning stint, and take it from there.

That's Tom Renney addressing what the Oilers plan to do with the roster spot that will be available once Deslauriers clears (or is claimed off) waivers. I didn't think Jacques was ready yet, but it sounds like he is, which helps to answer the "What's changed?" question I had been asking. With Jacques presumably healthy, the Oilers were forced into making a decision, and Deslauriers ended up being the odd man out.
