Edmonton moves their bad contract. For Smyth who at least plays like a 5 million dollar forward. Colorado gets a prospect and a mid-high first rounder for the rebuild.
Smyth is without a doubt my favorite player in the NHL. But they moved him so they could sign a d-man in the offseason (Souray). Their strategy moving forward was going to be adress the Defense and work from there. I can't really blame them for trading him.
