07:37 AM ET 11.13 | Ladislav Smid knows of what he speaks. [Smid] had this warning for the boys back on his old team, the Edmonton Oilers, if things don't turn around pretty soon in Edmonton. "They're going to start dealing guys," says Smid, a seven-year Oiler who was traded on Friday to Calgary. ... "Mac (GM Craig MacTavish) is not afraid to move guys, for sure. He wants to succeed. He doesn't want to wait. I think there's been too much waiting, too much waiting. He's not going to (mess) around." Smid and his wife Ashley -- an Edmonton girl -- had only this past summer moved into the house they had built in the Alberta capital. Now it'll be on the market, and she's already buying Flames doggy sweaters for their pooch, Jasmine. "Funny, eh?" laughs Smid.

The only song I can think of that fits the present situation is, "Yakety Yak, don't talk back"
