But if Gorges pairs nicely with Hamrlik most days, I still wouldn't mind having a base covered in the event that Komi or Hamrlik get hurt and somebody else has to step up to more minutes. I'm not sure if Smith is still capable of that or not - he seemed to manage ok on a team that eliminated us in the playoffs - but he has at least done it in the past, and consequently might be able to do so again. If he's more typically playing third-pairing minutes when we're all healthy, or if he just meshes better with Bouillon or something, that's fine too. Keith Carney would be in a similar category to consider IMHO.

Which is basically exactly what I'd be looking for.
