Smith had his production tail off dramatically. He brings a lot of effort...but it just seems like he's snake bit lately. He was also most effective on the power play early in the season...now it would be hard to justify him taking any one of Fisher, Erat, Kostitsyn (x2), Legwand, Radulov, or Hornqvist's spots there.
Yip is a role playing grinder that only adds a meager amount of offense. I like the effort, but I think I would only ice him when we're facing a big forward lineup.
Wilson...well...I don't think he should be scratched, but I think a lot of the reasoning is that he's not playing to his potential, and his lack of attention to detail is well-noted.
Halischuk is the only one that confuses me. I would love to see him out there every night...no matter if he's scoring or not. Him and Bourque are my two favorite young forwards right now.
