Cap-hit is 750k lower than the average contract on a 70M cap.

Whatever he isn't, he's a good third line LW who can chip in 15 goals and 30+ points. Just hope he takes a xanax and stops taking dumb penalties next year.

Cant really expect him to sign for any less than that, so good job Oilers. Just hope theres still room for Harski.

im cool with it, as long as he's effective at 3rd-ish line minutes, 2nd unit PP camped in front, and some shifts on the PK

I am okay with $2.25 two years is fine being that the cost was so low.



Hall - Gagner - Eberle
Paajarvi - RNH - Yakupov
Smyth - Horcoff - Jones
Harktikanen - Belanger - Eager
Lander Petrell


Is this our depth chart right now?

Glad Smytty is sticking around. It's the right thing to do.

Great signing and contract. Good job Tambo!

It's a year and a half too long, awful awful deal for the team. Seriously, 2 years for this guy, wow. Nothing beats a "favour" contract.

Ugh with this, such a bad deal.

There is room, but he will have to earn it.

IMO, the worst thing you can do for guys like Paajarvi and Harti is hand them jobs in this league. I think the competition for jobs will be good for them going forward.

If they have a good camp and prove they are ready, then they will play.

He just left about $3M on the table to sign this deal.

I'm actually very happy he has come around. Now...how are we going to get Maggy back into the development track of this team?

Hemsky or Gagner might be dealt today. Gagner is my guess, and probably for a disappointing return, like a no.5-6 defenseman and a draft pick.

Right now:

Hall-RNH-Eberle
Hemsky-Gagner-Yakupov
Smyth-Horcoff-Paajarvi/Hartikainen
Eager-Belanger-Jones
Petrell

We don't "have" to trade anyone, but it's a potentially soft forward group. I wouldn't mind adding a bigger body. Jones could even be moved out IMO. I like him, but he's fairly redundent and replacable.

Good. I'm glad he's back, and this is a nice contract.

I know Oiler fans LOVE to crap on any of their own players that have been here over five years, but this team is better with Smyth's leadership, grit, experience, and scoring depth.

I guess all the talk that he was holding out for big money was pure fantasy.

Great deal IMO. Posters say they would laugh is Feaster signed him but the fact of the matter is deep down they would feel badly betrayed. Welcome back Smytty.

Solid deal.

It'll be an intense battle for LW spots.

Holy over reaction. I didn't really want him back but this is not a bad contract.
