In this economy,the real money is the actual remaining monetary value on the contract.

If you can't see that,...................
I would rather the Oilers be the team that can't attract top free agents(cough, cough Souray) than the team that signs Gomez, Drury, and Redden to insanely retarded contracts(21 million cap hit).

Zherdev has zero value since odds are he will bolt back to Russia or want Gomez/Drury money. Plus he's not taking Hemsky's spot on the RW. No way we trade Gilbert for Rozy straight up. Pisani for the salary dump but NYR has too many RFA's to resign that are better than Pisani....for the money
