Not sure if it would work, but it might be a way to get something decent for a fairly low price
that would be a big no from the flyers-- Schultz is number 5-6 on the oilers, Potter is a guy who should be in the AHL--Musil has potential--but Coburn and Meszarov can step in an play tough minutes.
I understand the logic of adding Schultz because oilers can not add 8.5mill in contracts without sending one back.
For me the oilers are in a worse contract cap situation then the Flyers becuase the Flyers have atleast on contract that will be going on LTIR-- oilers will be needing the bonus contract area to add anyone-- problem is that the bonus' will carry over to next year when the nuge, Petry, Justin Schultz, and a few others needing contracts.
Also, for the 14/15 season the oilers will have just two nhl ready d-men under contract. Smid and Ference. Petry and Schultz RFA, Nick Schultz, Grebeskkov, Potter, Belov will be UFA and Larson (who we do now how good or bad he is) will be a RFA
