He also has great leadership and played 1st paring and was relied on heavily in the bruins cup win.
Offensively Seidenberg is better then Smid, but defensively Smid has him beat hands down and he's 5yrs younger. You also saw a bit of offense from Smid last year, which was a pleasant surprise. Give him a offensive partner and he might match Seidenberg numbers. I see Petry being similar to Seidenberg, with more of a upside as a overall defenseman.
