Smyth: I'm Going Home

"It just hasn't worked out here. You know, it's tough. It's disappointing to go to a new team with high expectations and not have them fulfilled. I told Garth (Snow) my intentions were to win a Stanley Cup, and if that worked out, I'd stay. Otherwise, I'd go back to my home, to where they need the help. And I'll be doing that. I let Kevin (Lowe, Edmonton Oilers GM) know tonight what my intentions were. He said they'd accomodate me and I couldn't be happier."


Newsday: Short Stay on Long Island for Smyth


Welcome back Smytty!

That gave me a cruel brief glimmer of hope before I realized it was April Fool's Day.

I hate April Fool's jokes, but this one may have an air of truth to it, but Smyth would never declare his intentions until after July 1st.

No link that works. No article on newsday.com. And it's just not believable quote.

April Fools, methinks.
