Yes they should have traded him. I know i’m going to get critized for this, but why pay 5.5 million for a grinder, even if he is your leader. I would much rather have a very skilled two way player in Richards for 7.8 million then a aguy who stands in front of the net, which almost anyone can do if they have some size, and are willing too. He was the Oiler’s, but if you can get a few good prospects and a draft picks thats good. Smyth is not a good player, or even close to an elite player. He scored goals, and tried hard, but that does not mean your worth 5.5 million. Here’s an few a ideas that I have that would not only replace Smyth, but be a large improvement over him.
I was watching CTV news today and they had interviewed Kevin Lowe about whats happing with the Oilers trading.
I am a huge Oilers fan, but a realistic one. This team will not make the playoffs with the current roster. They need at least 2 more good d-men.That will make them good enough to get into 8th, and be swept………why bother.
Ethan Moreau of the Edmonton Oilers has signed a 4 year extension through the 2010-2011 season.
Craig MacTavish and Kevin Lowe have some tough decisions to make this year.
Since relocating to the depths of the deep american south it is going to be a heck of a lot harder to watch all the games this year, but hey living in Florida does beat living in Calgary!!! From an Oiler Fans prospective anyway!
According to pro sports daily:The Oilers continue to try and lock up Hemsky with a multi-year deal of either two or four years.
According to Hockeybuzz.com , Ryan Smyth has reportedly signed a two year 7 Million Dollar Deal with the Oilers. No confirmation by the moment by the oilers’ team.
EDMONTON SUN reports it doesn’t look good for Georges Laraque re-signing with the Oilers. He’s expected to hit the UFA market on July 1st. Also reports the Oilers appear to be closing in on a new contract for playoff hero Fernando Pisani.
With all of the great moments from the 2005-2006 Stanley Cup run, none was bigger than the 3-1 comeback that almost led the Oiler’s to the promise land. Unfortunately, the Oilers fell to the Carolina Hurricanes, a team that is much deserved of the Stanley Cup. The Oil spent most of the regular season in distress, going through streaks of greatness, and other stretches of mediocrity. Their hopes and dreams came down to the final few games of the season, where they barely edged out the Vancouver Canucks for eighth place in the Western Conference, for a first round meeting with the Western Conference leaders, the Detroit Red Wings.
Rolosons knee injury may have been worst then it looked. According to the score, Roloson is expected to miss the remainder of the finals with a “lower body injury”. This looks like bad news for the Oil who rod on Rolosons back all the way to the Stanley Cup finals.
