Ryan Smyth is an Edmonton Oiler. Details of the deal (Colin Fraser and a distant 7th rd pick in 2012) are unimportant, Ryan Smyth returns!

Oscar Klefbom is a fine young defenseman with a bright future. The Edmonton Oilers didn't tip their hand as to how much they liked him, but we should have known he would be high on their list. Why? Read on.

Good gravy. Can anything with the Oilers be straight forward anymore?

I woke up from a well-needed nap, and much to my chagrin, but not to my surprise, the Ryan Smyth saga still lingered. I will say the Smyth spectacle has given me a new appreciation of how fanatical some Oiler fans are. I've received emails and tweets suggesting Tambellini be fired on the spot if he doesn't complete this trade, while others are asking for updates every 2nd hour, because they won't be able to rest until they crack the case.
It is great to hear, read and see the passion, and it is why I love my job, but for those who are frustrated, and bordering on being mad. - take a deep breath it will be okay.

ST. PAUL, Minnesota -- Frank Musil was always tough as nails and mean as hell as a defenseman in an NHL career spanning 797 games, but he was soft as putty talking about son David after the Edmonton Oilers selected him 31st overall at the NHL Entry Draft Saturday.
