A cap at $60M completely changes the FA market for probably a couple of years. Most of the usual big players would be looking to shed rather than add. A team like Edmonton might be an attractive option for a guy like Clowe for example.

Trades also become more of an an option. If you have the room to take on a significant salary you may get lucky. That is basically what Vancouver did to get Edler.
I said other than needing money for a new player

I think if the Oilers had the poopetunity to get a Clowe or an Edler he'd be bought out immediately before
