We have $2.85M in bonuses counting against next year so far. So we have an additional $2M in cap space to use this year. The contract can be set up as mostly bonus money. Ie what Boston did with Iginla's contract: $1,800,000 salary + $4,200,000 (easily attainable bonuses) = $6,000,000.
Plus we can send down a player like Larsen to save another $900K in cap space. ($1,025M - ($550k + $375k)) = $100k cap hit and $900k cap space.
The Oilers have at least $4.25M to sign a UFA.
No the Oiler currently have $1.3M not $2M. You get this by taking their total commitments including bonuses and subtracting the $4.8M cap cushion.
Edited for correctness.
