Oilers want a decision from Mike Smith and Duncan Keith
Sportsnet: Elliotte Friedman on 32 Thoughts on Edmonton Oilers goaltender Mike Smith and defenseman Duncan Keith.
“You all heard Mike Smith after Edmonton was eliminated, how emotional he was about the potential of his future and the Oilers have asked Mike Smith and Duncan Keith to let them know by around July 1st if they do plan on returning next year or if they are considering the potential of retirement.
Smith was really banged up. Keith didn’t say much publically but I think the Oilers both know that both those players have decisions to make, and they asked, ‘can we have an answer by around July the 1st.'”
