from Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun,
Ladislav Smid heard the about the trade via a 4 a.m. wakeup call.
He wasn’t happy.
Nor was he too impressed about waiting over a month to see if it would actually come to fruition.
“I thought I handled it pretty well,” said the Edmonton Oilers defenceman.
“I was trying hard not to think about it. I was just waiting to see what was going to happen. It sucked, but I was just trying to relax back in the Czech Republic, spend some time with my family and try not worry about it.”
