The Oilers need to make moves but they also need to watch how they spend. Long term contracts with big money are going to kill this team. No Hossa, Huet, or Campbell contracts that will derail our depth, or a piece of the core in the future. MacTavish needs to imagine how much our core will be making when they're off the ELC's and spend around it. For example.. Eberle (6), Hall (6), RNH (6), Yakupov (6), Schultz (5), '13 pick (5).. 34M right there. The cap next season is 64.3M, so you can have 30-40M committed to the rest of the roster..

One player I hope the Oilers go after is Anton Khudobin. He's been fantastic in Boston this season and would push Dubnyk. He could even potentially take over as our #1 if he kept his play up.

Also I'm sure there are going to be plenty of buyouts this off-season. Players like Laich, Umberger, Franzen are all potential buyouts that would be great additions.
