Well, I would not call myself a hockey expert but I would point out that the reason the Oilers do not have a starting goalie they have confidence in has nothing to do with money. You can blame management and point at Lowe, MacTavish or Peeters. Or you can point at Conklin and wonder what the heck happened (I don't think anything happened - I think he was always mediocre and just moved to crappy) or you can say that there is a shortage of good options available in the market but you cannot say it has anything to do with money. At no point in time has the Oiler ownership said anything this year about a lack of coin. If Lowe thought there was a trade that would improve the team he is able to make it. I just don't think it is there at the moment.
