The Edmonton Oilers are getting ready for free agency starting next week. I’ll be looking at which players they should be targeting moving forward.

Edmonton Oilers: With the NHL entry draft behind us, we can now turn our attention to the free agent market. The Oilers have yet to sign Darnell Nurse or Ryan Strome yet, and I’d be willing to bet that those two players will come to a total that is sub $8M. Hopefully, it’ll be closer to $6.5M though.

If you were listening to Oilers Now yesterday you would’ve heard Bob Stauffer throwing out the number $3.5M as the remainder he thought the Oilers would have under the cap after re-signing the aforementioned Nurse and Strome.

If I recall correctly, he also felt the Edmonton Oilers would need to sign four players with that $3.5M and so our exercise today is to find four players that’ll fit within the constraints of that number.

First I’ll start off with the wingers, then the defencemen and then the centers. Let’s get this started.
