Nuge will likely get the same or similar contract to Hall and Eberle. HOPEFULLY Yakupov the same, but with the KHL factor and the fact that I think he is going to put up some sick numbers he could end up being the highest paid Oiler for a few seasons.
Well I shouldn't say we have to lose any one in particular, just that eventually we will have to lose some one. I am sure we can keep some core group, but, some one will have to go. Chicago lost a lot after they won their first cup, my point being, hey.....lets just win that cup first.
