Strength. He was too scrawny after his sophomore year. His junior year helped him out a lot. I watched many Maine games throughout his 3 years, and he was clearly stronger his junior year. After his sophomore year, he, the Wings, and all parties involved agreed that the best decision was to play a 3rd year in Orono. It was an easy call.

Smith is a guy who was probably brought along a little too slow, at least last year. But Nyquist has come along at the right pace, assuming he's a full-time Wing this year.
