"The Waiting Is the Hardest Part"- Tom Petty

All we can do right now is wait and see.

Until anything is officially announced and is 100% completed, everything is speculation, in regards to the Smyth Storm that took place this afternoon into this evening.

I was with Chris tonight and what we do know is this much:

1. The terms of the contract have probably decreased in duration.

2. The monetary value of the contract have seemed to increased: Somewhere within the ballpark of $1 million more per season, in relation to what Edmonton offered. (Keep in mind the Boys in The Ol' Barn will NEED to overspend if they intend on making "Captain Canada" into "Captain Coliseum")

3. There could be an official press conference as early as tomorrow.

4. It will most likely be a front-loaded contract.

There was a lot of speculation flowing about this afternoon. We're doing the best we can to insure that you all are provided with the most accurate information. With little information being shared at this time, the deal and the details seem to be changing at a constant rate. Hopefully within the next 24 hours, we will have a clearer understanding of what exactly took place today (if anything, which is certainly seeming to be). Hope to be sharing some good news with you all soon.
