Hasn't been a value of thread about Smid in over a year and he's an upcoming UFA so I figured I would make one.

Was wondering if the Oilers' management has said anything about him resigning with them?

If not what would a deadline deal look like?

How much money will he get on the open market? Will he take a discount and stay in Edmonton? Does he have any friends you think he might look to play with, la Parise Suter?

Most teams would love to have him, I think.

But I also think he re-signs.

$3.5 million/year is his value IMO.

He's stated so many times that he loves Edmonton and how he doesn't want to leave. He is arguably Edmonton's best defenceman and won't be getting traded.

Smid loves Edmonton. The team loves him. He will resign.

Smid is not "untouchable" is the way the big five might be, bt it would take a pretty special trade to get him involved. Since the Heatley deal Smid has stepped up into a leadership role with the team.

1I think Smid gets a deal similar to Giordano got. About $4 million a year for 4-6 years.

If he hits free agency I hope the Flames go after him.

He's worth a mid 1st, but Edmonton isn't in any rush to trade him.

He worth 3.5 to 4 million . If he wants more then that we will trade him . I hope GMST has talked with him and his agent to know what they are looking for . Knowing GMST he probably sitting on his hands . From what i see he is out scouting for team Canada while the Oilers are paying him . I guess he thinks his job is to sit at the draft lottery and smile when we get the first OA pick . Then his second part of the job is to Call the players name . Fire the lazy **** already , bring in a real GM that is proactive instead of waiting until the last minute on everything

I hope the Oilers are prepared to offer up to 5 for him. He's good enough to make that kind of money, we won't be able to replace him easily (if at all), we already are weak on defense, and he'd probably get around 5 on the open market anyway.

I expect he'll sign an extension similar to the 5 year, $4.25M/year contract Vlasic got.

This year's defense UFA's are a weak market. Smid would be smart to hold out for UFA. He would get an overpayment from a desperate team (including the Oilers).

I would say it would be closer to 3yrs.

The Oilers will not make the same mistakes the Habs make, Smid will be resigned before he becomes UFA. I don't believe Smid is as greedy as some players.

Its not about greed. Its about worth and value. The NHL is a business. Players generally want the most amount of money possible. If that wasn't true we wouldn't have had so many lockouts...

Love Smid's game, one of my favorite "underrated" defensemen around the league.

Not in the sense of intrinsic value; but what about in terms of what the team needs? Think the loss of Smid would have more of a negative impact than one of the big five.

And yet every season there's players who sign on for less than they could get on the open market. Crosby and Malkin both took discounts, Tavares, even Edler this past year.

Smid loves the city, married a local girl, and has generally shown he wants to be here in every respect. If there's any player who might take less to be here long term it would be Smid.

His worth is likely in the 4-4.5 range on the open market. I'd like to see Edmonton lock him up for 4-6 years in the 3.5/yr range. At the same time if he get's 4/yr I wouldn't thin of it as bad contract...just less discount to be here.

It is surprising that he has not resigned yet. On the radio station they have been saying that if he is not signed by the trade deadline that he could be traded. He is a good stay at home dman that blocks shots, sticks up for his teammates and is the perfect team player.
What is his worth? I think a lot of teams going for the cup would love to get this player.

He better not be traded. Smid is what we need more of; a great character guy who plays well and does what he needs to.

I'd do 6-7 years at 4-4.5 million, hopefully 4.25.

IMO the team was letting him focus on training, the shortened season, and his wedding first. Now they'll start in on some negotiations so he has the summer for his honeymoon without having to be in contact with his agent.

Never eard anything to say he doesn't want to be here and he's an integral part of our shutdown D. It'll happen.

I get that there's nothing indicating him wanting to leave but has there been anything about him negotiating a new contract?

Nothing public from insiders but his agent said something along the lines of not expecting negotiations to be difficult. I would expect things to get under way relatively soon.

It would take a huge overpayment to get Smid off of Edmonton.. One of the top hitters and shot blockers in the league to go on top of his defensive style game. I'd expect him to sign in between 4-6 years, 4-5M per.
