when 95% of the posters think smithson has been passed up, something should be changed.. the hockey knowledge of our posters is quite good. we're not trotz but we watch this team.. every game & every shift. smithson has sucked so tremendously this season.. combine that with trotz' notorious track record of favoring veterans over rookies despite play.. I think maybe you can see why most posters are ready for smithson to be gone.

also trotz is a great coach but coaches don't always make the right decisions. they are just like us.. I am confident by seasons end we will see smithson's role diminish even more
Using that logic, we should have passed on Yip and SK, traded Wilson last summer, and quite possibly have signed Dan Ellis to a long term deal because, well, that's what message board herd mentality dictated.

Smithson = role player. McGrattan = role player. Hell, even Ellis = role player.
