2 Cups

This is a major offseason for Ken Holland and the Oilers. He has a lot of decisions to make with free agents, and some major holes to fill. Let's have a look.



Upcoming free agents:

LW/RW Andreas Athanasiou - RFA - Cap Hit 3M in 2019/20
Age 26
2019-20 55GP 11G 15A 26P -46


D Matt Benning - RFA - Cap Hit 1.9M in 2019/20
Age 26
2019-20 43GP 1G 7A 8P +8


D Ethan Bear - RFA - Cap Hit 0.72M in 2019/20
Age 23
2019-20 71GP 5G 16A 21P -4


LW/RW Tyler Ennis - UFA - Cap Hit 0.8M in 2019/20
Age 30
2019-20 70GP 16G 21A 37P -6


C Riley Sheahan - UFA - Cap Hit 0.9M in 2019/20
Age 28
2019-20 66GP 8G 7A 15P -13


G Mike Smith - UFA - Cap Hit 2.0M + 0.750M? Bonus Earned in 2019/20
Age 38
2019-20 19W-12L-6OTL 0.902SV% 1BOCT (Beatdown On Cam Talbot)


Other FA's: William Lagesson (RFA), Patrick Russell (UFA)



Other decisions:


Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - One more season until UFA. He currently makes 6M a year. He put up a nice season at 61 points in 65 games. Will be 28 years old once he is a UFA. I'd really like to keep him here, but he has 9 years with the Oilers and a single playoff appearance. I would assume he wants to test the market. I'd hate to trade him, but he could be a piece depending on whether his feeling is to stay or go. He'd create a major hole without a replacement.


Adam Larsson - One more season until UFA. Currently age 27 and has a 4.167M AAV. 6 points in 47 games last season, so he certainly has more to be desired at his pay scale. Is he traded soon?


Bad Money - James Neal has 3 years at 5.75M left. I don't see much happening with him. Too early for a buyout IMO, although this would be the best chance to trade him after a 19 goal season. Kris Russell still plagues the Oilers with one more year at 4M. Would love to see that money gone. Kassian is also bad money.




Current Signed Line-up:


71.351M Cap Hit
10.149 Cap Space

xxxx - McDavid - xxxx
RNH - Draisaitl - Yamamoto
Neal - xxxx - Kassian
Chiasson - Khaira - Archibald

Nygard, Haas

Klefbom - Larsson
Nurse - xxxx
Jones - xxxx

Russell

Koskinen
xxxx


If the roster is kept as is (I sure hope not), that leaves about 10M for a 1B goalie, a decent raise for Ethan Bear, two wingers for McDavid, a 3C, Evan Bouchard's contract, and perhaps re-signing Matt Benning.

There is a lot of work to be done this summer and not a lot of money.
