He may not be a top 20 player league wise. He is a niche player. He was the 6th highest scoring LW in the league last year and had a poor year by his standards. He also drives the net and scores the gritty goals needed in the playoffs moreso then the other 5 LW ahead of him.

Smyth has a lot of value since a lot of teams are looking for a player exactly like him
