im with you man. i get to see Ryan Smyth play close to 70-75 games every season he's an unbelievable person on and off the ice. He's a stand-up guy who's very popular with the fans and helps out with the community. The Oilers found out last season that they simply can not win without Ryan Smyth in the line-up. He's underated because he plays with the Oilers who don't get marketed as much as other teams and he's not an overly flashy guy who wins throphies, But he's done enough to be crowned team MVP many years in a row. I don't think anyone will ever think as highly as i do about Smyth unless they get to watch him play the full 82-game grind. Under-rated or not, He's still my favorite Oiler.
