If you're the Oilers GM would you keep Smyth, a fan favorite, who will work hard every game, or do you move him for either two of those three guys that aren't going to be contributors in your lineup (MZA is a poor man's Paajarvi, and look at his struggles in EDM)? Plus one being a freaking cap dump.

What incentive at all does the Oil have for losing Smyth for a return that isn't going to help this season or the future?
