Smyth keeps on ticking! Oh wait...;)

Seems like nobody on the board wants to mention this. I will.

2g 2a 4pts for Smytty last night trying to carry a desperate club to victory. The
4th time this season Smyth has notched 4 pts! Few that watched the game last night would suggest anything but that Smyth was the best player on the ice for either club. Naysayers however will point to the loss and somehow blame Ryan for it...

In anycase Smyth has 4g 6a 10pts in 8 games with the Oilanders and has earned himself several thousand more fans.

He now has notched 35goals in 61 games played for .57 gpg on the year. Even with only 61 games played(he's missed 10) he's still 9th in league wide scoring. Prorate for the missing games and he's tied for 4th in league goal scoring with only Lecavalier, Selanne, Heatley, having scored more.

Cheers for Smytty, I won't stop being a fan.

Ha ha, I don't think we "don't want to mention" Ryan's success, we just haven't made a big deal of it. I belive though that others have mentioned it in other threads.

The Islanders are 2-4-2 with Smytty in the line up and 32-23-8 without. Sure he's playing great, but his contributions so far haven't translated into a winning record.

I don't think anyone would suggest that Smyth is to blame for the Islanders recent funk. However, I still think it is worth noting that so far Smyth's best efforts haven't been enough to make a difference.

It was actually an 8-5 loss.

Bergeron had 3 points (23 mins) and was an even +/-, Smyth was a -2.

... with 2 empty netters.

Smyth was 5v5 even and Bergeron was 5v5 +1..

Smyth was on for both empty netters while Bergeron was on for one of them.

Is it strange that all the Oilers, current and former, who participated in the SC run last season have either been a) struck with injury, b) struggled with performance, c) played on teams that can't seem to win, or d) all of the above?

Good for Smyth and I hope the Islanders do squeak into the playoffs and make it far despite the Oil getting a higher 1st round pick if they tank it.

Yep. And the list goes on.

Peca, Pronger, Samsonov.

Dvorak and Laraque might be the only guys who have actually gone relatively injury-free and still put up decent numbers.

Peca ~ Injury problems this season.

Spacek ~ Dido^

Samsonov ~ Poor performance.

Bergeron & Smyth ~ both performing good but playing on a struggling team.

Pronger ~ Good performance.. but plagued by injuries.. also playing for a team with success.

Laraque.. might be the best former Oiler in the best situation this year.. performing decent, no injuries and playing for the Pens who are having some success.

Dvo ~ Performing decent but on a mediocre team.

Why do people post about ex-Oilers? So what if they are doing well best of luck to them. You should be more concerned with present and future Oilers. I doubt if Smyth will ever be back here btw.

Why do people post about others posting about former Oilers?

I just hope that the Islanders fall from grace and can somehow get us a 2nd pick in the top 10. IMO Smyth will not return, and at the salary that he wanted, I wouldn't want him back.

Because it is like rubbing it into our faces for mistakes we made. I'd rather look forward than backward.

I don't see how this thread is rubbing anything in your face.

Just because you don't care doesn't mean that others dont as well. I'll always cheer certain players I admire.

What needs to be concerned about, the Oilers hold their own fate.. I don't think people who post on HF have an influence on what direction they go.

Agreed. Which doesn't change just based on sole affiliation.

My appreciation for the player remains.

We all have different definitions of loyalty.

Some of the ones you hear quoted on sports boards reduce loyalty to constricted simplicity.

People in or out of our lives make indelibly lasting impressions that remain beyond divorce, death, relocation. This is learned through experience with life and awareness.

I don't value people on the basis of whether they stay with me in some form but on who/what that person was when valued.

That value and memory persists even through eternal seperation.

Maybe something to think about in our life and affiliations beyond hockey.

Were people actually expecting Smyth to struggle in New York though? It's not like we made this trade thinking Smyth was overachieving in Edmonton and that he'd struggle to put up points on Long Island. How New York will measure this trade is by wins and losses and they're currently not doing so hot in the Ryan Smyth era.

Didn't you know that KLowe himself reads this board and considers the opinion of EACH and EVERY poster before making ANY and ALL decisions?

He may be getting points but his team isn't getting the points where it counts: the standings.

If mullet boy wants to consider himself an elite player, he should start making those around him better and get some more wins under his belt.
