See the red wings are in a success only mode. You have generational talent at the point in their careers where its win the Stanley cup for the season was a failure.

There may never be a time where the Red wings have the talent of a Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Franzen and LIdstrom all on one team again. Potentially 2 HOF and the 2nd greatest Dman ever. I think now is the time to go for it and I cant think of a better player you can get for smith than Jagr. Jagr may even sign on for another year or two.

SMith on the other hand is an unknown. He is not a sure thing like a RNH or a dougie Hamilton. He is your top prospect but there are cerntainly better prospects in the NHL. Is it really that hard to part him for a chance to win a cup.
