I rolled my eyes when I saw that. Compare his numbers to those of this year's UFA crop and it makes more sense. Luckily the Oilers UFAs will only be Jones, Smyth, Brown, N. Schultz, Belov, Grebeshkov, Potter, Dubnyk and Labarbara. The only guy in there likely to get paid is Dubnyk, with Belov a bit of a wild-card. Half of those guys the team might just flush after this year anyways.

RNH, Schultz, and Petry are RFA's and aren't comparable, and I believe only Petry has arbitration rights. His situation will be like Gagner's next summer where he has a lot of leverage because he could choose to go to arbitration, take the 1 year deal then be a UFA in the summer of 2015.
