I heard on the radio that Detroit is also looking at him right now or at the deadline. I think he's everything the Wings need and would be a great addition to the team for a cup run

Edmonton isn't going to trade him.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

the only way Edmonton would give him up is if they get someone good in return, and we cant afford that

I think he'd be great here, but I don't see Edmonton trading him.

The demon code prevents me from declining a rock-off challenge.

I can't help but comment on all posts relating to the one player I really wish we'd get. If he does get traded I'm pretty sure it won't be to Detroit. I just hope we can maybe get him over the summer if he doesn't sign elsewhere.

Since Edmonton isnt set on trading him and dont have to, you can be damn sure he wont be had for anything like Hudler and draft picks. I dont think the Wings would pony up anything that would interest the Oilers...so i'd rule it out.
Aaron Downey tally = 4 Wins (Mclaren, PARROS, *Laperriere*, Wisniewski) - 1 L (**Boll**) - 5 Draws (Walker, Fedoruk, Davison, Shelley, O'Donnell)

(* = beatdown) (** = at the end of a shift)

Preseason prediction - Anaheim over Philadelphia in 6 (ok, well i'll settle for one right...)

I can not believe this is back up. Seriously, other than Gretzky, Ryan Smyth is number 1 there. He is a hometown boy, who is adored by fans and a great player to boot. I am almsot positive he will spend his ENTIRE career in Emonton. He would be awesome here, but it ain't gunna happen. However wants can cut and paste this and bring it back to say: "ha!! Kev you were wrong!!!" if it does end up happening, but I am sure thaty wont happen.

Ryan Smyth is an Oiler and always will be. Lets not waste our time looking at him and let something good pass us by while we are twidling our thumbs on something that wont happen.

More talk about Ryan Smyth, foolish talk. He is not going to be traded. Yes he would be great here, but IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

Edmonton is only a scant few points outside of the playoff bubble. They won't trade their franchise player right now.

Wings can do their part by beating them at the Joe on the 23rd. wink.gif

But seriously, they'll probably sign him to a six year deal or something.

Edmonton is currently six points out of a playoff spot. They have six games between now and the trade deadline, and twenty more after that. They will not drop out of playoff contention in the next six games, even if they lose all of them.
