The oilers have little for legit centre prospects, so that leaves UFAs and trades. UFA you pay top dollar or overpay, so I don't see how it adds up.
Well as long as we have 3 of the top 9 guys in ELCs we'll be fine.
You cant just jump 4 years ahead and go 6M x 4. If the top 4 6M guys are playing like 6M players then you can just pick up an Arnott or Antropov as your #2C.

This season no one is making 6M...
Next year Hall and Ebs make 6M but Whitney and Khabi are UFAs
The year after RNH and Schultz may get 6M but Smyth, Hemsky and N.Schultz are UFAs
Same with Horcoff and Yakupov..

We should be able to ice a group of forwards for well under 40M.. It is 35M this year.
