I agree, it's quite obvious to this poster that Smyth is clearly the most dangerous & talented forward on the Oilers roster. It's too bad so many can't recognize his skill though. So many people actually think Smyth is only a marginally skilled player - in my mind, he is more talented than even Ales Hemsky on the Oilers - but he's just not as flashy.
