What's the issue, exactly?Is it your money? Are the Oilers in danger of losing one of the kids or not being able to bring in a high priced UFA because of it? No? So who gives a crap how much he makes?
Yes, there definitely is a chance of losing a key player or not being able to bringing in a high priced FA.

Here are the unsigned needs: #2C Gagner, #2 LW big power forward FA. #3 LW PRV, #4 C Smithson (Guess we should see him play to decide if we want to keep him) Top pairing D FA. Two bottom pairing depth Ds. Potential 1A Goalie. 3rd/4th LW Jones $1.5M?

The Oilers have $16.5 M in cap room next year.

Gagner $4.5M
PRV $2M
Smithson $0.8M
Bottom pairing D $1M each for two.
Second goalie (1A someone who can push Dubnyk) $2M
Jones $1.5M

TOTAL $12.8M

That leaves $3.7 M for a 1/2 D and a power forward who can play LW on your second line.

Or

$9.2M for a 1/2 D, a power forward who can play LW on your second line and a 3C.

Which would be easier to do?

Your counting RNH, J. Schultz, and Yakupov's salary with bonuses. We can basically add 6M right there, on top of that Belanger and Smyth shouldn't be back. If you want a top 6 Power forward then Hemsky will have to go. And IMO They'll move N. Schultz, if they can bring another top 4 LH d in. Just my 2 cents
