So I worked this out on capgeek.com. By giving the players involved a contract with a cap hit the same as their current salary (given that the cap is going down it makes sense to me that is reasonable to assume we could get these players for this money on average) this is am affordable team for the oilers with room to spare.
This team is premised on buying out Horcoff, trading Gagner, Hemsky, N. Schultz and Belanger for draft picks and acquiring only free agents. Obviously this team would only happen if everyone signed here (so it very likely wouldn't) but it is conceptually interesting to illustrate what drastic change could be possible this year.
Line 1: Hall. Rnh. Ebs
Line 2: Paajarvi. Weiss. Yakupov
Line 3: Harti. Boyd Gordon. Horton
Line 4. Bickell. Maxim Lapiere. Colton Orr
D1: Streit. J. Schultz
D2: Regehr. Petry.
D3: Rozsival. Smid
G: Dubnyk. Labarbera (insert inexpensive goalie here)
What does that look like to you all? Better team or just change for change sake?
Colton Orr is not an upgrade on Mike Brown.
