I'm not a big supporter of how this fanbase tends to focus on what they're seeing rather than the machinations behind the product.

The Tambellini era was incredibly toxic. MacT will flush the turds, and Smyth will stick around to help this year.
It takes two to tango, I tend to believe that Smyth wanted two years and wouldn't back down, his negotiation skills are why he was traded in the first place.

I created this thread because of his poor play on the ice, not his contract
