totally off the top of my head, factoring in math, etc..

Niinimaa made 2.9 mil
Carter made 2.5 mil
Pisa made (random guess here) 700k

Cross Made 750 k
Dvorak 1.8 mil
Isbister 1.8 mil

The trade was made at the 70 game mark, meaning the oilers paid these guys:

Niinimaa $2.5 mil
Carter $2.1 mil
Pisa 600k (but I think he spen time in the minors, so this is actually less)

They saved $900k here.

and payed out:

Cross 100k
Dvorak 260k
Isbister 260k

Spent 620k

They saved 280k on salaries
Their prediction of 2 million in losses came from only 2 home playoff dates (they got 3)
The Hamilton Bulldogs saved them money (both in the sharing with montreal, and in the extended playoffs)

That there probably adds up to close to 1.5 mil.
