I think that is pretty much it.
1. Tambellini was a liar - Fraser wasn't healthy when the regular seasons started. But I'm fine dumping Smyth as he is a 3rd liner making 6mio$ at this point in his career.

2.Doughty is signed long term, same Kopitar, Richards, Brown, Johnson... Tambellini (or the next Oilers GM) has yet to do so for your core because I doubt Khabibulin/Horcoff/Smyth is a solution for the future.
