Smith, Condra, Cowen, Greening, etc all dropped off in the last 1/3 of the season.
They played 100 games the year before.
Why is that shocking?
So Chris Neil is 33yo and won't likely be a significant part of the next contender in Ottawa.
Smith is a young, forechecking, middleweight fighter, who just put up an offensive season that would've fit amongst Neil's best. He isn't quite the energy player/sparkplug that Neil is, but Neil will never be the defensive player, face-off man or PK'er that Smith will be.
He signed for less than Neil makes with a much higher salary cap than Neil originally signed under. Why is there any debate as to whether this is a good deal or not?
