IN PRAISE OF RYAN SMYTH

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders

In a recent blog entry on newsday.com, Islanders beat writer shares his take on all things Ryan Smyth.

Writes Logan: "To all the skeptics who say general manager Garth Snow overpaid with Robert Nilsson, Ryan O'Marra and this year's first-round pick for what might be a short-term rental, I say, when you get a shot to make a player like Smyth part of your franchise long enough to let him get comfortable and to assure your team of an exclusive negotiating period before the free-agent market opens on July 1, it's worth it."
