Many of you don’t know this, but without Ryan Smyth, Oilersnation may not exist. In 2007 when Smytty got traded to the New York Islanders and broke all of our hearts the website that eventually turned into Oilersnation.com was born. This legendary website was called BringRyanHome.com.

If I could, I wish I could write an article every day about how cool Ryan Smyth is but Baggedmilk won’t let me. Fortunately today is his birthday and I can write AS MANY ARTICLES ON SMYTTY AS I WANT!
