He played in the Nhl for many many years and worked his butt off for every one of those years. He could still skate circles around us scrubs on this board so lets keep it in perspective shall we? If nothing else he deserves a little respect for having had a great career. I think it is fine to suggest he should retire but lets keep it classy for a change,
If you were watching the Oilers after December last year you'd realize the lockout has nothing to do with his ineffectiveness.

Great careers are easily soured. Take yourself out of the game before people forget the pre-Islander Smyth days.
