LADISLAV SMID RUMORS

Flames new defenceman Smid gets advice: ‘Just embrace it’

Lots of players get traded. But no one could possibly know how Ladislav Smid feels, being traded from the Edmonton Oilers to the dastardly Calgary Flames. Well, except for one guy. And one guy only.

Smid/Oilers Closing In On A Deal

Acquired...
