Dammit. I like Ryan Smyth. Red Wing fans would love him if he were a Wing.

he is a good player at around $3m but $6.25m is ridiculously overpaid.

great deal for the avs

Kings had room for a large contract after their pursuit of Hossa, so the money isn't an issue. Furthermore, they dealt from a position of strength for an area of weakness. Smyth is a great character guy for a team that needs some veteran leadership and a few goals. Hard to dislike this move.

I'm still stuck on someone calling Smyth a "pretty boy".

Ok, now that I'm over that, NOOOOOOOO! Not Quincey! Not on the Avs! AAAAAARGH!

Colorado just got better, and the Kings really blew that one.

Too bad. I like the Kings and I liked having Quincey there where I could still root for him.

Pretty boy? Smyth? Ew.

Money on the board!  Current total: $2

$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster.  +$5 if one scores a hat trick.

+$1 if a GWG.  +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

Why the heck would the trade Quincey? He was a stud for them last season.

Too true, too true.

Poor Quince He was loving the room in LA, being one of the main up and coming youngsters. Would be cool to end up with him again somehow.

Colorado could've asked for more IMO.
