May be we can give RNH just 2 year deal for less money. Cap will increase and we can keep both.
I do not really want find Oilers in the situation that we need to start trade away young veterans because of money issue. Atlanta and Islanders are warning examples how things can end up.
I have one exception Ryan O'Reilly. He seems to be available. He is a bit bigger and as good as Gagner.
