Oilers meet with Smyth's agent again...

FIRST UPDATE: TSN is reporting talks are still going on with Smyth and that Raffi Torres, Joffrey Lupul and Petr Sykora are available.
They also note that Lowe is shopping Brad Winchester.

Kevin Lowe might go into panic-mode soon if Smyth is not re-signed.
Smyth is having a career year and he might be the jewel of this offseason's free-agent crop.

Come on, we know it, Ryan Smyth loves Edmonton, the Oilers are nothing without him.
If they lose him, they lose a born-leader, a scorer and a great guy.

You know what, give him the money he wants, give it to him, the 5 or 6 million he'll get, every penny will be worth it...if he can continue to help the Oil in the long run.

If only it were that easy to give a guy that kind of money and still have cap space leftover, unfortunately for Kevin Lowe, life is very complicated now as the Oilers are still questionable.
The word that perfectly qualifies them "questionable"...they are currently slumping and they earned only 6 out of a possible 14 points on their road-trip.

It'll be interesting to see how Kevin Lowe will manage his team, from today until tomorrow...can he bring in another Roloson that will save them?

Honestly, I don't know who can save this team...without giving up a truckload of youngsters.
I feel for you Oilers fans, I really do.

Well, we all know that Gainey is a very very savvy GM as we saw with his steal of Abby from Colorado, and his amazing 1st round pick for Rivet. Now with two picks, can we send Souray and two 1st rounders to Edmonton for Smyth????

That's an interesting suggestion LK, but, Souray is likely to comman the same price as Smyth on the free-agent market and I don't see the Canadiens trading two 1st rounders for him but if a trade were to happen, which I doubt, The Oilers would likely have thrown in the first rounders.

Thanks for posting!
