Look at Parise and Suter in Minnesota. While Parise is faring well, Suter is not. If the Oilers took a chance on him and he ended up stinking out the joint we're stuck with his cap hit for another decade.
Sometimes a GM needs to be aggressive. Whether or not that time for the Oilers is now is debatable, but what I would say right now is that expecting the same roster + Schultz and Yak to be significantly better than last year's team is probably asking too much.
