i guess i'll take it? better not be any bonuses...dont want a higher cap hit next year

SK13 07-01-2012 10:27 AM

Cap-hit is 750k lower than the average contract on a 70M cap.

Whatever he isn't, he's a good third line LW who can chip in 15 goals and 30+ points. Just hope he takes a xanax and stops taking dumb penalties next year.

SK13 07-01-2012 10:27 AM

My other post got moved, so now this one is redundant.

jebs 07-01-2012 10:27 AM

Cant really expect him to sign for any less than that, so good job Oilers. Just hope theres still room for Harski.

CorpseFX 07-01-2012 10:27 AM

im cool with it, as long as he's effective at 3rd-ish line minutes, 2nd unit PP camped in front, and some shifts on the PK

The Nuge 07-01-2012 10:27 AM

Not a bad deal. I assumed he was gone...

Valic 07-01-2012 10:28 AM

I am okay with $2.25 two years is fine being that the cost was so low.



Hall - Gagner - Eberle
Paajarvi - RNH - Yakupov
Smyth - Horcoff - Jones
Harktikanen - Belanger - Eager
Lander Petrell


Is this our depth chart right now?

Tarus 07-01-2012 10:28 AM

Glad to see him come down on his demands.

Decent contract

Lowball 07-01-2012 10:28 AM

:yo:

Glad Smytty is sticking around. It's the right thing to do.

Great signing and contract. Good job Tambo!

oilers92 07-01-2012 10:28 AM

nice deal still a useful 3rd liner and mentor to some of the younger players

Ever since Craig joined us and started doing my job, I've been an excellent GM!
Another good one. lol.

It's a year and a half too long, awful awful deal for the team. Seriously, 2 years for this guy, wow. Nothing beats a "favour" contract.

Ugh with this, such a bad deal.

There is room, but he will have to earn it.

IMO, the worst thing you can do for guys like Paajarvi and Harti is hand them jobs in this league. I think the competition for jobs will be good for them going forward.

If they have a good camp and prove they are ready, then they will play.

Hemsky4PM 07-01-2012 10:29 AM

He just left about $3M on the table to sign this deal.

I'm actually very happy he has come around. Now...how are we going to get Maggy back into the development track of this team?

Hemsky or Gagner might be dealt today. Gagner is my guess, and probably for a disappointing return, like a no.5-6 defenseman and a draft pick.

Right now:

Hall-RNH-Eberle
Hemsky-Gagner-Yakupov
Smyth-Horcoff-Paajarvi/Hartikainen
Eager-Belanger-Jones
Petrell

We don't "have" to trade anyone, but it's a potentially soft forward group. I wouldn't mind adding a bigger body. Jones could even be moved out IMO. I like him, but he's fairly redundent and replacable.

Yup, its a good deal

DisgruntledGoat 07-01-2012 10:30 AM

Good. I'm glad he's back, and this is a nice contract.

I know Oiler fans LOVE to crap on any of their own players that have been here over five years, but this team is better with Smyth's leadership, grit, experience, and scoring depth.

I am the Liquor 07-01-2012 10:30 AM

I guess all the talk that he was holding out for big money was pure fantasy.

Haha, one of my favorite twitter accounts.

backhandsauce 07-01-2012 10:31 AM

Great deal IMO. Posters say they would laugh is Feaster signed him but the fact of the matter is deep down they would feel badly betrayed. Welcome back Smytty.

Mr Forever 07-01-2012 10:31 AM

Solid deal.

It'll be an intense battle for LW spots.

Holy over reaction. I didn't really want him back but this is not a bad contract.

Literally every word of this is incorrect.

Ganz 07-01-2012 10:31 AM

Sorry Calgary.

We didn't even need a NMC clause...(wait and see)

JessikaLovejoy 07-01-2012 10:31 AM

I'm eh on this deal.


Somewhere in Sweden right now, MPS is weeping. Yak and Smyth added to top 9.
