This is true, I can't believe how many fans wanted Smyth resigned just because he got carried for about 30 games by RNH. If this were any other team, Smyth doesn't get anywhere near 2 million per season for 2 years. Also, fans are partially to blame for the Oilers ending up with Ryan Smyth in the first place. Management wasn't too keen on trading for him, but ended up doing so anyway to appease fans.
