Ryan Smyth's Unlucky Penny

"I guess it was an American loonie or an American dollar. I don't know if it was good luck for them or what, but it wasn't in very deep so I was scared the boys were going to trip over it. So … got it out."

Um, yeah right. And I am not certainly not hesitant to say that after reading the following in the above linked Canes MB thread...

"During Wednesday's pregame skate, Smyth dug out of the ice the coin that the RBC Center ice crew had buried at center ice back in February, leaving a divot where the puck will be dropped a little after 8 p.m. tonight."

Way to go, Ry. >:P I don't think I could put it any better than MeDotCom in the same thread...

"Seriously, what gave him the right? I don't care if he thought he saw a gold nugget under the surface, you don't chip away at the ice surface eight hours before a Stanley Cup Final game. I hope he hurts himself in the rut he created."
