I will give you this: with the exception of forgetting to protect Sheppard, Smith had terrific success until 1992: drafted Zubov, Norstrom, Kovalev, Nemchinov, Weight. He acquired Messier, Graves, Beukeboom.
You cannot take that away. He did great the first couple of years.
But after 1992, it was horrendous. He dealt away all youth and many picks, his best first rounder was a third liner and all his second rounders were minor leagues. He made one senseless signing after another.
Past the summer of 1992, he was arguably the worst GM in the league.
