NHL Rumors: Edmonton Oilers, and the Chicago Blackhawks

Allan Mitchell of The Athletic: The flatting of next season’s salary cap at $81.5 will give the Edmonton Oilers and many other teams a headache.

Top pending free agents may look for short-term deals.

Oilers UFAs like Mike Smith and Riley Sheahan might not like the offers that Oilers GM Ken Holland may be forced to offer.

RFAs like forward Andreas Athanasiou and Matt Benning have some control, but the Oilers could have to be choose one of the two or let someone else walk.
