How Much Do The Oilers Have Left To Spend?

With Nikita Nikitin, Mark Fayne, and Benoit Pouliot added to the roster, and with Jeff Petry and Justin Schultz still in need of new contracts, the Oilers suddenly find themselves within shouting distance of the NHL's 2014/15 salary cap of $69M.

Edmonton Oilers please analytics crowd, grab Mark Fayne and Benoit Pouliot

After adding another good puck possession player (and former Bolt) in Teddy Purcell, the Edmonton Oilers signed two more in Mark Fayne and Benoit Pouliot. 5-years, $20M for Pouliot... 4-years, $14.5M for Fayne #Oilers — David Pagnotta (@TheFourthPeriod) July 1, 2014 Obvious overpay for Pouliot there, but he still comes in at an AAV that isn't going to break your salary structure and along with Purcell and Fayne should help Edmonton's very serious possession woes.

The Oilers targeted Fayne, 27, from the opening of the free agent interview period last Wednesday. The Oilers also signed Rangers left wing Benoit Pouliot to a five-year, $20 million contract. {More)

Fayne key cog in revamped Oilers' blue line

Mark Fayne had ties to New Jersey that eclipsed his four years with the Devils, and he had other teams trying to reel him in from the free agent market, but in the end, he saw something in the Oilers lineup that sold him on Edmonton. He signed a four-year contract, worth $14.5-million on the opening day of NHL free agency, instantly improving the club’s blue line.

Devils “might not be able to compete” with Fayne bids; Volchenkov buyout frees money to add scoring

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello hasn’t given up on re-signing Mark Fayne, but pretty much conceded today that the expected market for the potential unrestricted free agent defenseman probably will be out of the team’s price range. “We’d like to (re-sign him), but we might not be able to compete with the numbers that are out there,” Lamoriello said. With the number of quality defensemen expected to be available when the UFA market opens at noon on Tuesday, Fayne, 27, will get a lot of attention. “We made what we feel is a good offer,” Lamoriello said. “We’ll...
