Well a Yip-Smith-Hali line looks better than a McGrattan/Smithson-Smith-Hali atleast. I'll wait awhile before bashing this move. Could be part of a bigger plan. Here's hoping.
I know some fans would like to see Smithson scratched now that move has happened. But everybody should be honest with theirselves. As long as Smithson is healthy Trotz will put him in the line up. So that still leaves an extra forward. I only see a few possibilities for rational for this move.

A. It's simply a depth move. Now two forwards could go down and we would have adequate replacements for them in the short term.

B. Management is getting ready to send Smith down to boost his confidence

C. Poile wanted to pick up a solid bottom six guy because he seriously thought one or some of Halischuck, Bourque, Hornqvist, SK could be traded soon.
