Umm, only two of those players are Oilers at the moment.I just don't see how this redistribution from RFA to UFA (which what Oilers fans seem to saying this about) helps small markets teams including Edmonton.Now it just means that guys like JF Jaques can tell Lowe they want $4,5 mil as soon as they crack 40 pts.How does driving up the price of young what should be cheap talent help a team like Edmonton except in the VERY short term?
