Also, just cause we have Smith doesn't mean we can't use another guy like him or Ruutu. As much bottom 6 as we already carry, I think we could use a more experiences one to solidify the bottom 6. A guy like Gaustad or whatever.
And it doesn't look like we have a Ruutu replacement in the system either. We have some prospects who could end up being physical bottom six forwards like DD, Kramer, Hamilton or Costello, but none of them are really stand outs as agitators. Maybe the sens should consider signing, drafting or trading for a guy who excels at agitating and can also play solid bottom six minutes.
