OMG OMG OMG OMG. Ryan Smyth is on NationRadio this week. Robin Brownlee hosts for the second week in a row and quite honestly we could kiss him for getting this to happen*

Cam Barker is on the show too – and you may recall he now plays with a Mr. Ryan Smyth. David Staples from the Edmonton Journal stops by too, ostensibly to discuss Ryan Smyth. Finally Ben Kuzma from the Vancouver Provence swings through. Perhaps he has some information regarding Ryan Smyth?

This is NationRadio. Enjoy!
