5.5 Million to spend next year.

It's unlikely the Oil will pick up Salo's option at 4M next year, and Oates will retire after this year (1.5M or so). That free's up a whopping 5.5M bucks next year. There are raises coming to some guys, but let's assume that only takes up 2.5M at the most. Plus a goalie to complement Conks at the 1-1.5M range. Leaving 2-2.5M on the table. Perhaps the Oilers could afford to add a decent player at the deadline, or in a trade for Comrie later in the season.

What do you guys think? Is there reason to think we could make an addition this year? Or in the summer?

Let's just pretend that nastly little CBA thing doesn't come into play
