Problem is his 55% faceoff value is of no use to us on the PP which is where we need it to the most. Finding an offensive center that can win faceoffs would be a huge step in the right direction to helping solve some of the PP issues.

I think many overvalue Smithson and Ward. These types of guys are dime a dozen type players. While I see their value, there are always guys like this out there on the market that can do exactly the same things these guys do for the same price. While Smithson's faceoff percentage is nice and his PK ability is good as well, it's not as if it can't be replaced by someone else.
