This is actually what I believe the Oilers should have done with Souray. No point in paying him every nickle to play in Hershey. I suppose this summer the Oilers could buy-out Souray at 3M spread over two seasons (1.5M). That would at least ensure that when Paajarvi, Hall and Eberle are up for new contracts there isn't any dead cap space left on the books.
Rolston can be bought up in the summer 2011 not before
