Smyth and Edmonton

They're just running through a bunch of rumours now on HockeyCentre and saying Smyth would look good with Edmonton paired with Hemsky. Apparently Oilers are in the mix. They've got to be kidding right?

He'd be an excellent fit.

From trading Smyth at the deadline a couple years ago.

Ozzy Osbourne hits the stage and starts rockin' "No More Tears" to the sound of this news.

I just didn't see Edmonton as a buyer, but then, they're no worse than anyone else in that logjam.

What would it take?

We do have the cap space to add a player like him with Vis out and remaining cap space...

Interesting.. Would he come back?

And salary from Edmonton can't be moved off the team to offset incoming cap?

If we could trade penner for smyth I would do it in a heart beat. Avs make 2 mil cap space and get a younger player back. MAybe I would do it as I missed smyth since the day it went down.

Oiler board would inplode.

Half the board doing cartwheels and the other half looking for a gun to shoot the two head monster called the GM.
I would like to see Smyth back in the oiler uniform where he belongs--I would trade Cole straight for him or Penner

Didn't say straight up or anything like that, just that he would have to be included.

Or dealt off somewhere else.

There is no way the Avs take an overpaid 3rd liner in Penner for a guy who still put up 27 goals this season.

Should have just signed him for the $5.5M and they would've avoided this whole Penner mess.

Eberle would need to be included or the Avs would just as soon keep their best player this season by quite a margin. I know that's who I'd be asking for.

Vishnovsky is out so cap shouldn't be a problem in the near future. I don't see anyone untouchable that has enough value to go though.

If somehow through a series of trades we could get rid of Penner and acquire Smyth I would be all for it. Although getting rid of Penner is gonna be a pain in the ass.

Oilers would have to send a 1st with Penner if they want Smyth and or a prospect.
