They're at the bottom of the league in terms of spending to the cap.

They don't have many bad long term contracts. Maybe Horcoff is amnestied in 2013 or 2014. If Chicago can keep Kane, Toews, Hossa, Sharp, Keith, and Seabrook, and Pittsburgh can keep Crosby, Malkin, Neal, Letang, and MAF, then Edmonton can keep their young core intact as well. Oh, and if they're smart, they'll give Gagner a bridge contract like we did with DZ instead of giving him the big bucks right away, like they did with Hall and Eberle.
