Apparently only elite teams can afford their players.

Chicago - Hossa, Toews, Sharp, Keith, Kane, and Seabrook.
Pittsburgh - Malkin, Crosby, Letang, Neal, and Fleury.
Rangers - Nash, Gaborik, Richards, Hank, and all their D.

I could pretty much list the high paid core of every team, and every one of them can afford their top guys.

Oilers will have no problem affording RNH, Schultz, Yakupov, Eberle, and Hall.

If it comes down to it, Oilers will shed money by losing Whitney, Horcoff, Hemsky, and Gagner, the same way the Hawks let go guys like Ladd, Campbell, Buff, and Brouwer.

You never let go of core players for money, unless you have some sort of internal cap with poor ownership.
