Who really knows what the hell went on today with the hold up on the Ryan Smyth trade. There must be some pretty intense conditions on that draft pick (as reported by McKenzie and Miller is the sticking point) for the two teams to not put a stamp on what both teams ultimately view as a necessary trade – LA for cap reasons, Edmonton to please their fans.

Since it seems as though Steve Tambellini may be the one who is mucking this up, I have to share a thought I had during the draft.

Steve Tambellini is going to look like Mason Verger from Hannibal when he gets old.
