I had no problems with the Hemsky contract and said so at the time but if the team is going to do that with Hemsky and lowball Ryan Smyth then I'm less impressed.

Theres a lot that ails this club, but it isn't Ryan Smyth.
I hope he takes 1 year contract in the 3-4M range. There is still space for Smyth on the team--Hartikainen and Lander can and should spend 1 more year in the AHL, unless they absolutely earn the roster spot.
