He gets paid 4.5 because he's shown that when playing an offensive role, he can score 25 goals, in addition to playing defense. Smithson is in the midst of a career year in which he may score 9. Ward might some day top out at 1.5. It's not a coincidence that he's having a down offensive year when playing with offensively limited players.
