Granted, he brings more leadership, grit and has been a more consistent scorer over his career than Antropov,
but there is no way the difference is that great.
And Antropov has scored 40 how many times? and in the playoffs he has done what?
Trying put Antropov anywhere near Smyth is a joke
How many times has Antropov scored goals in a year?
How many times 20 goals in a year?
Big Nik is an UFA after this season with 3 playoff points in 28 games
Deadline moves will be centered on players who have done some damage in the playoffs--Nik has done none
for the record
Smythe has 52pts in 81 playoff games
has scored 30+ goals 4 times
20goals + 8 times
BigNik has scored more then 20 once
I consider that a BIG difference
and no GM has run Smyth out of town like Burke is doing with BIGNIK
not sure how--but the fish just jumped in the boat and put the hook in it's mouth
The twenty year rebuild is on!!! Embrace the suck
