Smith is 23 years old and ready for prime time now after paying his dues in the Detroit system. He is 6'2" 205 (ish) former 1st round draft choice and a left handed shot with offensive upside. Smith, Bogosian, and Trouba would be three quarters of a very special long term top 4 grouping. Plus we would have him until he was 27 years old (pending new CBA). Toby is going to cost us $6 million a year in his new deal and although I like Toby more than most Jets fans but I think his offensive talents are redundant on a team with Buff, Bogosian, and Postma and I think Smith will put up 30 points this year.
I firmly believe Smith could play top 4 minutes this year (I could be wrong). I salivate at the thoughts of a Smith Bogosian top pairing in a year or two.
The problem is I really doubt Detroit would touch this.
Like this idea and the players mentioned.With the guys to resign in the next few years,6m plus for Toby is just to much money.The time for trading him is right now.
