Or maybe Smytty is just playing like SH!#. 1 assist in 7 games, not even visible on the ice. He was playing with Moreau who was the oilers best player in the past 3-4 games yet Smyth continues to dissapoint. Now 5th on Oilers scoring and dropping fast he has managed to turn himself into a glorified Kelly Buchberger, splashing around on the ice like a fish out of water every time a defender leans on him. his work in the corners has dissapeared along with his ability to create traffic in front of the net. Pretty much a waste of organizational dollars this year as his 3.5+ contract has gone to waste. I pray to god every night that we will see a miraculous return of the "real" Smytty but unfortunately all I get is this Buchberger clone that is frustrating at every turn. What did I do wrong?
