The oilers need help on D, he's got one more year with a reasonable 2.250 cap hit.. Tallinder for Smyth and a pick/prospect?

They were saying on NHL Network today that it's the plan for the Oilers to give Smyth days off anyway. Nothing out of the ordinary from Edmonton, apparently.

 

But no, I wouldnt want him on our team even if they paid us to take him.

I wouldn't trade one of Tallinder's sticks for Ryan Smyth, let alone Tallinder himself.

A few things. First, Smyth left a great thing in LA and a chance to win a Cup to go home. He asked management to be traded. He wants to play in Edmonton badly. Secondly, when he re-signed this off-season, apparently, it was discussed that he would be a healthy scratch from time to time.

 

Edit: I see it was mentioned earlier in the thread.

He's damn near done, and Edmonton means a lot to him. They'll want more than he's worth to move him.
