Smyth Will Hit The Market

Don Meehan, agent for Ryan Symth was just on Leafs Lunch.  A once in a lifetime opportunity for Smyth to see what his value is.  The Islanders have made an offer, but Smyth wants to see what he is worth on the open market.
Also, cap numbers have been set, Ceiling is $50.3M and floor is $34M and maybe some change.

Sources tell TSN that for the 2007-08 season, the salary cap will rise to a maximum of $50.3-million. That is a $6-million increase from this past season when the cap was set at $44-million.
Under terms of the collective bargaining agreement, teams must spend at least $34.3-million on salaries next season.

added 1:37pm, Darren Dreger just on Leafs Lunch and said the same thing, Smyth will test the market.  Dreger has heard the Islanders have offered Smyth $6.5M per year and that figure may scare some teams off.  But Smyth also wants to win and he may question if the Islanders have that ability in the near future.
