Good for Smytty, if true.

oilers4life5 06-26-2011 11:05 AM

LA got rolled, wow, We traded a 6th rounder for Fraser so Smyth cost us a 6th and 7th rounder. Awesome!!!

Good for the Kings if finally true. Clears up massive cap space.

To a major contender like them, they'll take the cap space over almost anything with a guy like Smyth I would guess.

Im not sure how we got "rolled", the whole point was to dump Smyth's salary cap hit and send him back home where he wanted to go...if anything win/win

Precisely why it only cost a 6th and a 7th rather than a 2nd...

Brule deserves another shot, Im happy its with the Oil.

LA gains massive amounts of cap space "wasted" on one of the least productive players in the NHL for his play.

GordieHoweHatTrick 06-26-2011 11:08 AM

Solid deal for both teams in the cap era

KINGS17 06-26-2011 11:09 AM

Now the Kings can get down to business on July 1. Lots of cap space to pursue more speed on the wing.

Good luck to Ryan Smyth. He was everything the Kings needed him to be in his two seasons with the club. Great veteran leader.

Tont 06-26-2011 11:09 AM

Thank God he's not going to Calgary, he belongs in Edmonton.

OilersFacepalm 06-26-2011 11:09 AM

Thank goodness. I don't think LA got fleeced, their hands were tied.

Lol some people just don't get it, its not about what we got in return its about how much cap space we just got rid of.

Marc the Habs Fan 06-26-2011 11:09 AM

It's over, it's finally over.

BeastoftheEast85 06-26-2011 11:10 AM

Good news for the Flames also IMO, they don't need another big contract, time for them to do a little rebuilding anyway.

fleeced we were trying to give him a way for free.....

Boyle 06-26-2011 11:10 AM

Kings just got 6.25 million in cap space and budget space to drop on a younger player.
