Ladislav Smid and the Oilers agreed to a four-year extension worth $14 million this morning. This is fair deal for both and a reasonable cap hit of $3.5 million. The deal does not include a no-movement or no-trade clause.
I’m not surprised the two sides agreed. The Oilers needed Smid and he really likes it in Edmonton. A rare win-win-win, for the team, the player and the fans.
