If he doesnt.. the pitchforks can come out... til then.. we as fans should try to stay classy and let him round out his career.
I'm fine with people criticizing Smyth this year. After publicly demanding a trade here so that we were pretty much forced to acquire him, playing like crap for half of last season and then playing hardball with the Oilers in the offseason instead of being grateful that we even brought him back, he deserves to be criticized.

This organization has made enough enemies with former players over the years. They don't need another one.
If Smyth can't realize that he is hurting the team and gets upset with the Oilers for sitting him, that's his problem.

We shouldn't be held hostage by bad players because we are afraid of hurting their feelings.
