That crossed my mind also. I'd like to see it. He's pretty much the only guy you can trust to get through the neutral zone unscathed. He doesn't have to make a perfect pass either, he can just be instructed to take the red line with speed and make a good dump-in. 99% of goalies can't play the puck as well as Smith so that was a temporary problem. You could even have Wandell change after dumping it in and have a defenseman come out instead. Or you could have him be the guy that goes to the front of the net and retrieves pucks after point shots.
