I wouldn't mind Smith, but not for that money.
Smith would be our nr 6 D. Its a lock that Marc Staal will be even better next year meaning that we will have a 1st pairing that plays atleast 25 mintes, and maybe even more in big games. That means that when it counts, Jason Smith would play around 15 minutes per night.
IMO its just not worth to pay that type of money for a 6th D with no upside.
