I'd say we probably have room for one big signing (not two or more - that (Hossa/Campbell/Huet etc) is what got the Blackhawks into a bit of trouble). As for D coming up, spots will likely be opened up, in particular Whitney's spot if he never heals completely, plus Sutton and Potter. That would leave something like

Suter
J Schultz
Petry
Smid
Klefbom
Marincin?
N Schultz (if he's still around)

Then there's always injuries and the possibility that guys like Smid for example will be hitting UFA soon.

That said, I see very little chance of the Oilers being in play for Suter, as I think he wants to play somewhere in/around the Midwest.
