I agree to a point. He didn't live up to his cap hit, but he still did contribute. He certainly shouldn't be in the same mold as Ethan Moreau. Off the ice, I am not a fan of Smyth at all, but he did do somethings decent here on the ice.

And he brought us Colin Fraser, so it's hardly a big loss.

While we're on the roll call of Legends of the Fall (of the Kings) from the 1990's and onward, these names also jump out to me:

Doug Zmolek
John Druce
John Slaney
Rob Cowie
Nathan Lafayette
Denis Tysgurov
Patrice Tardif
Troy Crowder
Arto Blomsten
Michel Petit
Ruslan Batyrshin
Kai Nurminen
Jeff Shevalier
Brent Grieve
Neal Broten
Paul Dipietro (why couldn't he do what he did against us a few years earlier!)
Jason Morgan
Steve McKenna
Russ Courtnall
Donald MacLean

Hard to believe that a few of these guys were the next wave of up and coming Kings stars. Many barely managed a full NHL season, anywhere.

By the way Axl, could you do us all a favor and make a thread saying the lockout is a guarantee? j/k
