I think he have 7 true top 6 forwards (Fisher, Smith, Wilson, Legwand, Kostitsyn, Hornqvist, Erat), the problem is they are all 2nd liners. Halischuk, Spailing, Borque and Tootoo are very, very good third liners that, if they progress a little more, could fill 2nd line minutes in the case of injuries, though not as long term solutions. Smithson is one of the few true fourth lines on our team (along with Yip and McGrattan).

As far as I can tell he's a great locker room guy, and it never hurts to have NHL caliber depth. I wouldn't mind us re-signing him for a few years to be a leader for us.
