Can't help but wonder where all this love for Smid was when he'd returned as a Flame. A whole wack of jackasses booed him. We're a great fan base in so many ways, but our pathetic bitter streak that comes up when previous Oilers return is ridiculous.
As sad as it was to see with Weight's return, there was a degree of understanding it since he'd bolted for bigger bucks. Evidently, we weren't able to cope with that, bein' all "small city" 'n all. But players that get booed for no reason at all beyond once having been Oilers... it's stupid.
I was set to get Smid's jersey just before he was dealt. He's a champion and quality guy.
