Ryan Smyth Trying To Keep Busy

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

With National Hockey League training camps three weeks away from starting, this is the first time in his life he didn’t spend his summer getting ready for hockey.

He says there are no withdrawal pains now, but come Oct. 9 when the Calgary Flames are here for the Oilers home opener, maybe they’ll kick in.

For now, he’ll be as far away from the rink as possible. He’ll be a National Football League and a baseball fan.

“I’m heading to Seattle this weekend to watch the Green Bay Packers,” said Smyth.

“Then I’m going to New York to see Derek Jeter close in on his final games.

“These are not things I’d be doing if I was going to camp. Trying to keep busy.”

He has seen the inside of a gym since hanging up his skates four and a half months ago. He hasn’t turned into a sloth.
