Smith was passed over because he only put up average numbers his first year of eligibility and was incredibly small. He was very young for his draft year.

He has talent and can be a scoring forward at the NHL level but size and strength will be an issue. Yes it is the same old song but he's not a supreme talent like Eberle that has the moves and speed to dominate despite size.
