The other thing about Luc, I never saw him blatantly quit on a play the way Smyth did on that Pavelski play in SJ. That was unprofessional and should have earned him a seat on the bench. To me that was the most pathetic play a King has made all year.
Has Smyth reached the Ran_y Jones level of suckiness to you yet?
To me, Randy Jones was just dumb as a light bulb on the ice, it wasn't so much a lack of effort that led to his mistakes.
With Smyth, age has caught up to him. While he was never a fluid skater, it seems as if his skating has gotten significantly worse. He could barely turn or stay on his feet. Every time he moves his feet, it looks like he has an anchor tied to his skates.
I think the only thing left to motivate him to play at this point in his career is his paycheck. If he wasn't earning so damn much, one would think that he wouldn't embarrass himself out there and do the honorable thing and hang up his skates.
He's looking about as bad as Jeremy Roenick did as a King.
