The problem here is not what Souray's value is or what he brings to the table, it's trading a top asset from a position of weakness to bolster a position of strength. It makes no sense whatsoever.
He scored 23 goals last year. He would have been your fourth highest goal scorer. When your highest goal scoring dman had six, I dont know how you could say that is a position of strength. It is a position of potential on your team. The acquisition of Smyth could signal a shift in management philosophy.
