This can't really be anything more than a hunch, right? Sure, his experiences in Tampa helped shape the person and professional that Mike Smith is but he showed every sign of being the type of goalie we're seeing right now when he was in Dallas. His time in Tampa started off really well and then was basically a nightmare, due in large part to factors outside of his control.
