The Edmonton Oilers are going to need some cap space in order to make the roster moves necessary to make the club a contender by next season.
Edmonton Oilers: Doing so won’t be an easy task for whoever ends up being apart of the new management team and is going to take a unique strategy to be successful.
The Edmonton Oilers have reportedly shortened their GM search to under ten names. There is no doubt that every single one of these candidates will be presenting their proposed ‘blueprint’ of how to create cap space to be able to add that much needed top 6 wingers into this Oilers lineup.
Obviously, there will be a plethora of other questions thrown the potential GM candidate’s way. But with the cap trouble faced by the Oilers, while still having a massive need to still add to the roster, this ‘blueprint’ proposed by potential GM’s may prove to be the most important in them landing employment.
So let’s take a look at some of the (limited) options the Oilers have to open up some much-needed cap space this summer.
