Buried in a short article in the Edmonton Journal was this tidbit from Jim Matheson yesterday:
SCOOP DU JOUR—The New Jersey Devils will sign former Oilers captain Jason Smith this summer when he’s an unrestricted free agent. Smith started his NHL career with the Devils.

Fair enough, but it still makes me wonder…
