That is 30 mil tied up in just 6 players. What about our dmen how much for Schultz and other dmen, they will want their money also. We will need a 2C that will make about 4mil a season.
I don't think you really do need a #2C if you have Getzlaf and RNH.

When Yakupov's deal is up you are looking at a cap of probably around $70M. To make that top 5 work you would likely be looking at a split that looks something like

Forwards ---$43.5M
Defense ---$22M
Goal ---$4.5M

The split could look something like this:

2 6 6
6 6 6
1.5 2.5 1.5
1 1.5 1
1 1

6 5
4.5 3
1.5 1


That said I don't see any way the Oilers end up in on Getzlaf.
