Maybe I wouldnt classify it as dirty, more along the lines of sneaky, but I actually don't like what he did. I liked it at the time, and I like him fighting, but do it straight up.
I would agree with you, if Avery had started the fight. But Smid is the one who decided he needed to challenge Avery after a clear hit. If you challenge a guy, stay square and in his face until he skates away. Don't let your guard down when you're still jawing.
