I want to see this happen just for the fact Oilers fans would lose their minds

Probably just another leak by Dean's camp to put pressure on Edmonton to get a deal done before July 1st. Calgary will probably deny any discussions have taken place.

Ok, no way Calgary has the cap space unless we take on one of their contracts, and their is no one Im interested in thats likely. I dont think Bourque is likely

Wondering if it's LA's intention to offer Richards huge bucks. If that's the case, can they offer Doughty huge bucks as well?

Or is moving Smyth now all about taking on Penner's salary last season? Not sure which ex-Oiler i'd prefer at the moment.

Do the Flames have the cap room to bring in a 6million guy like Smith (Granted it is only for 1 year)?

Nice to see Calgary has zero plans on rebuilding. Maybe they will give up some prospect/pick to make their farm even worse.

Kings have enough cap space to offer Richards money and extend Doughty without even moving Smyth

Not sure what Calgary has for a return. Hagman? Stajan?

I can't see this happening unless LA is interested in taking on Stajan.

Stajan + Rights to Tanguay for Smyth.

The only way I wouldn't cry with this trade is if it was for Stajan and Kotalik.

Kings are probably only doing this because:

A.) Smyth openly said he'd want to play in Edmonton again and many thought he'd be traded now.

B.) To pressure Edmonton to pay even value for Smyth as opposed to looking at him as a salary dump.
