Might have something to do with that the Czechs play teh most passive system ever, no offense unless it's counterattack.
Well, Smid wasn't much of an offensive defenseman to begin with. His role is Defensive Defenceman, tough as nails guy who will put his body on the line to make sure the puck does not go in the net, with a little bit of offense. Not much, maybe a goal or two every 10-15 games or so.
