And, I'm sure that Hossa will get a chance to cement the development he's shown this year. Smyth won't be a Ranger. Either he heads back to Edmonton, or I can see two scenarios - 1) he goes to a Western Conference team like Dallas, or 2) the Canadian teams like Montreal or Toronto throw a bunch of money at him.
Sather loves getting at least one player that he knows very well. He drafted Smyth and he would help us more on the PP.
