My understanding from http://www.capgeek.com/oilers is that the Oilers currently are spending the following (scroll to below the roster players):

Salary Cap $64,300,000
Salary Payroll $58,841,666
Cap Payroll $67,774,167
Bonuses $9,150,000
Cap Space $1,348,333

Is this not your understanding?
Yes, but that includes the bonus cushion. Take $64.3-(67.774-4.8225)=$1.35M

And yes you are right, if they send down Larsen they will gain $925K. Potter would also save some. But at best you may get to $3M and you are risking a cap penalty next year if you spend too much of that.
