Dylan Holloway began to truly play to his full potential for the Oilers in their playoff run, just in time to negotiate his contract this offseason.

The 22 year old forward is a restricted free agent this offseason, and his salary value will be an interesting case. According to Jim Matheson, Holloway could earn up to $1.835M in salary on a two year contract.
Holloway has played 89 regular season games, but only scored 9 goals and 18 points. In the playoffs however, he elevated his game for a few clutch appearances and played mostly in the top-six, scoring 5 goals in 26 games. Matheson compared Holloway to Vegas' Pavel Dorofyev, who earned $1.835M on his RFA contract.
For a player who has scored as little as Holloway has, $1.835M would feel a little rich. The team also needs to sign RFA Philip Broberg, and they're currently $2.45M over the salary cap. Hopefully they can get both RFAs signed to cheaper deals, and can make a trade for free up the cap space needed.
The Oilers don't need to sign their RFAs until the beginning of the season, but hopefully, both parties can agree to a deal before that and can be at training camp for day one.
