I don't see why everyone is freaking out looking at the contract. One year left on his deal, so he could be pawned for draft picks at the deadline, and if he sucks then he's basically a 6.2m cap hold for one year. I can live with that.

Apparently Tanguay is after a nice pay day. If we aren't trying to win, we don't need Tanguay, especially if he's after good coin.

I don't even understand why Calgary wants Smyth.

He's redundant with Bourque and co, and he's not getting any younger.

The only thing that would make any sense is if we sent some of our multi year bad contracts back. Then we would only have to deal with smyth's contract for a year and not multiple bad contracts for a few years such as stajans. Not a draft pick, how do we keep smyth under the cap?

Edmonton doesn't need Smyth, and they can make a fair offer to him next summer. I have no problem with Smyth going to Calgary. It does boggle the mind that the Flames would take on that cap hit.

They must be moving Regehr. Even then...is the team getting any better this way?

I'm hoping the Oilers take a stab at getting Hartnell or Versteeg from the Flyers.

The Oilers can find cheaper transitional players than Smyth.

This. No doubt his age is catching up with him but with 23 goals, 24 assists, 47 points and -1 on the season, that isnt anything to scoff at. Granted its not worth 6million but its only for 1 season then can be cut down to a fraction of that.

You're getting an experienced NHL'er that cans till produce and get the gritty work done in front of the net. I'd be happy if Ryan stayed so honestly if you have the cap room then its not a bad investment.

Makes absolutely no sense for Calgary, who are already up to their eyeballs in bloated contracts for players on the decline.

Makes some sense for EDM who could use the veteran leadership.

lol. How do you even know Tanguay wants to re-sign? Maybe he wants to test out the market.

Tanguay probably wants a shot at a roster spot in Vancouver.

Ryan Smyth at $6.2 million???
Lombardi will have had a couple of really good days if this deal closes.

Even though Smyth might have lost a step...he's still a dangerous player around the net... Good Luck...
