The 4th line is used as a defensive tool ... Yip's ability to play d and offensive play down low around the net fit that line's mission better than Smith ... especially against the Blues.

If Smith was playing well enough lately to handle 3rd line minutes then a Smith/Wilson combo there would present a threat in the offensive zone, but it would be scary defensively.
