As the summer days stretch out and the warmth of the sun, holidays and lack of hockey news begins to impact our ability to keep track of the day-to-day, it's important to remember there are holes in the Oilers and available free agents. Those free agents are currently weighing job opportunities with salary demands, and another two weeks of unemployment will probably mean these players are finding new homes for 2013-14. One player of interest to the Oilers may be Daniel Cleary.

I'm not crazy about the length of the contract that'll take Andrew Ference within a couple of years of having 40 candles on his birthday cake, but there's not much doubt in my mind Edmonton Oilers GM Craig MacTavish has found himself a player who'll fit into his dressing room seamlessly.
