A little more money than I expected, and I really dislike the 2 years, but I guess I'll take it. As I've said many times, he's still an effective player when given the right number of minutes.

I'm glad to say they were able to get this done, and IMO the dollars look right to me. In terms of cap implications, 2.25M/yr isn't much different from paying out 1.2M/yr back when the cap first came in.

A NTC wouldn't shock me.

I don't see how you can trade him anyway. He's here for family.

Not quite. Maybe reality hit him. I'm sure the Oilers had an ultimatum, since they would need to move on to look at other options that would disappear quickly. A contract on the morning of July 1 speaks volumes...

I expect this is really a 1 year deal, heavily front end loaded, spread over 2 for the cap hit.

He's making more then Bertuzzi, he's not as good of a player.

Yeah, I was hoping for a one year at most. Maybe he will do better with reduced third line minutes.

Well he is ours now. FREE AGENT BOOOOOOOONANZA! Eat it......actually cannot think of anyone who would have given him two years.

I expect teeth for this Smytty.

Yah because he is such a bad player, this is a value contract.

One year too many, i think Tambo caved to the Smyth camp but it's not a crippling contract and we have added Yakupov and Schultz already in this offseason so it's hard to be too mad.
In any event, it's good to have Smyth back. I just hope that he sucks it up and accepts a bottom 6 role.

Better not be. Seedling will get angry. You wouldn't like me when I am angry. (insert hulk here)

2.25M is a nothing cap hit.

Getting angry over it makes about much sense... this board usually does.

Honestly. If I was MPS I'd be worried.

Where does he fit long term? Maybe he's the bait for a dman

Based on the money that was given to him, I hope it means he's willing to play 3rd line and PK.

Not really. Tambellini always leaves things till the last minute. If Smyth was all about the bucks he never would have signed this deal. The TD last year was evidence that there is still a demand for Smyth. Im sure he could have got 3-4mill on the open market if he chose to do so.

Does anyone remember what the offer was at the deadline that Smyth turned down?

Youre right. He's a better player. Your Smyth hatred is making you look a little foolish here.
