    "I think that went of Smitty's face" - Ryan Smyth to announce retirement

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=448955

    According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, Smyth is ready to announce his retirement and Saturday's contest between the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks will be his final game.

    The 38-year-old has scored 10 goals and added 13 assists in 70 games with the Oilers this season. He has 386 goals and 842 assists in 1,268 career NHL games with the Oilers, New York Islanders, Colorado Avalanche and Los Angeles Kings.

    Smyth was drafted sixth overall by the Oilers in the first round of the 1994 NHL Draft. He played in Edmonton until he was traded to the Islanders on deadline day in 2007.

    Smyth was traded back to the Oilers prior to the 2011 season, after spending two seasons with each of the Avalanche and Kings.

    Smyth won a gold medal at Salt Lake City 2002 while playing for Team Canada.

    I would say no, was a wizard in front of the net, but the numbers aren't quite there IMO. Great player in his prime no doubt, but not HOF worthy.

    Here's a fact. Ryan Smyth was never great and those numbers above are inaccurate. He has 842 total points. He has not once gotten above 70 points in a single season. He's been the man sure, but on some pretty terrible teams. Still shocking how Edmonton reached the finals, but that was truly the highlight.

    He's hit 50+ points 10 times. Was a terrific player. An elite player in front of the net. I'd say he was 1 or 2 for years with Tomas Holmstrom inthat area. Played a warrior style, but no.. not a HOF player.

    No to HOF, but if they had a category for best whack-a-mole I think it might be a toss up between Smyth and Holmstrom.
