That isn't exactly what I am saying. What I am saying is that I would like to see the Bruins get Smyth but I also don't like what I think it would cost. I also think that Smyth wants to finish his career in Edmonton.

I don't think Smyth-Kelly-Peverley is much better than Caron-Kelly-Peverley, I think Smyth provides another veteran presence and I think that would be great to add for the playoffs.

I would be looking at Smyth as an insurance policy against injury if they were actually considering moving him. I would be looking at him to fill the role that Brian Rolston filled at the end of last season. I don't know for sure what the Oilers would want for Smyth, but I am pretty sure that I wouldn't want to pay it for the role I would like to see him in.
