Oh, so it's a conditional pick, but we don't know

New, comments

what the conditions are. Riiiiight. Okay. Anyway, the Ryan Smyth era is at an end. One hundred points in 149 games. Clearly an important element of each of our last two (very successful) seasons. It's highly likely that without him we would have missed the playoffs. And there were long stretches of either season in which his line was the best line on the team; for a couple of weeks, they were even the best line in the league. So I won't mention that his points-per-game was not quite as good as Ladislav Nagy's. 

I expect the Oilers to have a pretty good year next year.
