Did anyone catch this interview? Any new news on the contract talks?
He said he would've liked to have had it done by now, but both the Oilers and his agent, Don Meehan, are ready to work on the contract again - he said he's just going to keep playing and let those two sides "hammer it out." By all indications, it sounds positive and that he wants to stay.
I was kind of half-listening, half-posting on message boards. So if I missed anything, I apologize.
Great interview and great show tonight, Dan!

Thanks Dan, I enjoyed it. You can still tell Smyth feels a little bit scorned by Lowe making other guys a priority before him. I think maybe he felt it was a shot at him because Lowe wanted to wait and see how he produced this year before upping the offer?
Either way he definately sounds like he wants to be here. Lets see what happens.
Mind you, he said "at the end of the day" at one point and I had a bad flashback.
