Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal:
Oilers general manager Kevin Lowe denied that he’s having a pow-wow with Ryan Smyth’s agent Don Meehan in the next little while, but he did admit he’s made “the first serious offer” to keep the free-agent-to-be winger here.
Lowe wouldn’t say how much, but he’s not about to lowball his longest-serving player.
“He’s got a lot of good hockey left in him,” said Lowe, who realizes the dynamics of signing a 31-year-old player are a little different than signing a left-winger in his mid-20s, like Simon Gagne or Alex Tanguay, who just signed five-year deals for $26.5 million.
