Just out of curiosity...who?

3.6 mil is a pretty damn good cap hit for 50 point center, who can win faceoffs, play the point, kill penalties, and is a great mentor to the youth.
My real only knock on Stoll since He's been here would be not playing 82 game seasons.
IMO, He's been slightly better than what I expected.

Comparing his cap hit to other Oilers

Horcoff @ 5.5 , I would take Stoll
O'Sullivan at 2.925. I would take Stoll
Pisani @2.500(I know He's a UFA) I would take Stoll.

I would think 3.6 would definitely be affordable for what Stoll brings.
