I know I'll miss Ladi Smid
Not me but this will be a Smid love fest thread.
****, of all the guys to go. and of all places. what the **** is this team doing?
ladi, sorry man, one of my favourite players on this team.
oops, wrong thread
Will definitely miss Smid. Hard-nosed D-man and a good team guy. We've now dealt the Flames Smid and Staios - two guys I'm proud to have called Oilers (although Staios was terrible when we moved him).
I do think Smid's game had dropped off a bit this year, so maybe the wear and tear is catching up with him. Still, gonna miss him.
Class act who wants to be here and we ship him to our biggest rival. Sounds like classic Oilers management.
Seriously one of my favorite oilers since we got him from Anaheim. I am livid right now that our management team has no idea what players are core players and what players should be shipped out. Seriously, this is a mistake. Bigger than Glencross, and to the same team FFS. MacT, and whoever else is making these decision, go **** yourselves. Seriously. Learn to ****ing manage a team.
I thought Smid was overrated after his great 2011-2012 season but it sucks to see him go still. Especially to the Calgary ****ing Flames..
fave dman on the oilers since pronger and smith left. hate to see him in a flames jersey.
Gonna miss Ladi. Guy was a warrior for us
too bad, smid....i wanted you on the Wings...good luck.
He's in a better place.
Gonna miss you, Ladi. You gave it everything you had every time you stepped on the ice. On the plus side, you get to stay close to home and play for a decent organization, rather than this ****show.
If you love someone, you let them free.
Good luck Ladi.
He came in looking very soft and disappointing, but he eventually did pretty much everything that was asked of him. We've lost an important part of our team today to our bitter rivals for what's potentially garbage.
Goodbye Smid. I'll miss you. I hope that Edmonton fails to score a goal while you're on the ice for the remainder of your career.
Congrats Smid, you managed to get out.
tears and beers for smid
Always liked Smid, and wish him all the best...until I see him in that sweater. I'm sure I'll hate his guys from that point on.
Definitely sad to see him go though.
I was a Smid hater the first few years he wore copper and blue. Thought his max upside was second pairing - but he's developed nicely into an NHL regular that isn't an immobile pylon like Whitney.
He's underrated IMO. Awesome shot blocker. I love how he stood up for others. I wish he spent more time in the AHL to develop his offensive skill. He used to rush the puck into the O-zone with ease, but rarely does that now.
Makes me very sad to say this, but at least he's going to a better organization.
Hahah it's so true. All of the other players are probably saying the same thing. Kinda like getting out of prison
Eakins to MacT: "Hey this Smid guy is not bad - he hits, plays tough and blocks shots."
MacT to KLo: "Hey Kevvy, I think we need to get rid of Smid, he plays tough and hits guys - that is not our style."
KLo to MacT: "Get rid of this clown or we will never win the lottery - there is a great small forward available at #1 again this year. He's all ours! We better trade Laddy to our lottery competition.... hey and we can also piss off all of those 'non-paying' fans off at the same time!. Man am I smart - I have the most Stanley Cup rings of anyone in the business today and now I win again! Right Mac?"
Take them down from the inside Ladi!
I only ever noticed him making a difference when he was the hardest player on the Oilers to play against. Which was every game he played.
******** trade, cya Smid, thanks for everything.
