You'd be ok with giving him $3M for a year? Not even a maybe for me.

The Oilers cap situation next summer is going to be an issue. $3M for Whitney would be an atrocious signing and prevent the team from actually using its money wisely in other areas.

My bad on the actual salary. Still wouldn't give him $3M no matter what his actual salary is.

He's a UFA next season. The rule you are referring to is for RFAs.
