Surprising Smyth is willing to waive. If he wants to play for the Rangers and only the Rangers,its Rangers or nothing for Edmonton.
Makes perfect sense to me, but then I did have Smyth to the Rangers as part of my predictions in the 5th edition of this thread, I believe.
If big guns like Ryan won't be moved till the summer, if the Yotes won't move Doan or Whitney, and if the price for Ruutu is a first round pick and more (ridiculous), then Smyth is a great fit for the Rangers. The cost will be low because the Oilers will take whatever they can get, especially if he is only willing to waive for 1-2 teams, and Smyth solves at least some of the Rangers problems for the rest of this season. Makes sense that he'd waive to come here, too. He wants a ring, and the Rangers are a contender in the weaker conference.
And then he can go back to EDM as a free agent. Or maybe even stay here on a cheap deal to end his career. Either way.
