Hate to burst your little fantasy, but none of them are going anywhere if the Oilers want to keep them.
Even at $6 mill per/average for all four of them that's not even close to half of a $65-$70 million dollar cap.
After Horcoff is done in three years (right when Yak's deal will be up), the Oilers don't even have any other long term contracts to worry about, it's basically all clear cap space.
If this is the group of four (heck, five even, through Schultz in there at $5-$6 mill per too) want to use as their franchise anchors, it's not a problem.
As for this trade, no way does CLB put their 1st on the table, and no way does Edmonton take on Wisniewski's contract, especially now that they basically got Justin Schultz on a dirt cheap ELC deal.
