Icon59 Oilers sign Mike Smith (1yr, $2mil + $1.75mil performance bonuses)

Frank Seravalli @frank_seravalli
Veteran goalie Mike Smith has chosen the #Oilers. He’s more or less trading places with Cam Talbot, who as we hinted on Monday, is heading to the #Flames.

Frank Seravalli @frank_seravalli
Expectation is Mike Smith will be in neighbourhood of $2 million base salary with potential to earn up to $2 million more in performance bonuses on a one-year deal with #Oilers, to be announced tomorrow.

Neat. I hope it's for a lot of money and that's why they bought out Sekera

Interesting twist on the Battle of Alberta, that's for sure. I'm sure we'll hear about it relentlessly if he looks good with them, and not at all if Talbot looks good with Calgary.

I really liked Smitty, so seeing him go there bums me out.
That being said, carry the puck in and shoot five hole!

I always hated Smith as a Flame, so this only seems natural.

.898 save % on the best team in the conference, and now he’s off to play with that squad?

It only makes sense that a goalie who is no good now plays for a team that is no good.

I think if we traded Smith for Talbot last year most people would have been okay with that. Makes things interesting.

Go 5-hole? Johnny can unleash his trademark breakaway/shootout move.

Oilers finally have themselves a #1 dman, or at least their best puckmoving blueliner.
