Gone but not forgotten.


Smyth started his NHL career in Edmonton and became an icon in the city. He was an Oilers fan as a kid, starting when he was four; while growing up in Banff, he prayed for magic shoes so he could walk to Edmonton and be part of the team, his father said.

The icing on the fucking ckae: Smyth already has an assist and helped out on MAB's goal in tonight's Islanders game. Kevin Lowe is a fucking douche.

Alana... I agree. All the power to Ryan though... he deserves to succeed......

I'm a distant fan......
