Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal:
If the Edmonton Oilers believe they still have a shot at making the playoffs on, say, Feb. 25, general manager Kevin Lowe likely won’t entertain any thoughts of trading free-agent winger Ryan Smyth before the NHL deadline two days later.
But what if the Oilers are 10 points behind the Minnesota Wild for the last post-season spot in the Western Conference in two-and-a-half weeks?
What if Lowe can’t get close to re-signing the 30-year-old left-winger to a four- or five-year contract as the trade deadline clock ticks down?
