He's not a true 1st line center at this stage, but last year's 51 points would've put him second in scoring on the Oil, only behind Smyth. And of course, the Isles need to round out their 2 way defensive group with a stay at home physical crease clearer and Smith fits that bill admirably. Not to mention, who knows what the Isles top 4 will look like with Aucoin and Hamrlik very possibly gone whenever the NHL starts again.
Perhaps Kvasha + 3rd for Smith?
I don't see the Isles offering more than that, and in the end predict that Smith could bring in greater value if shopped. But the Oil and the Isles have done a number of deals in the past, so it's possible.
