Cap Space and availability, those two are big name UFA's, who says they are gonna wait for us?

Rafalski, hands down it should be him first and foremost, build from your Goalie out should be the motto for The Oilers this season.

Money.

That's probably over $12MM/yr you're talking about there.

They're already on the hook for at least $34-35MM assuming they let Sykora go and keep Lupul, Torres ($1.5MM) and Greene ($1MM). They'd still need to add 2 dmen as well.

They won't be spending to the cap, so I really doubt they go that route.
