Not to trash on Smid since he's solid, but you'd probably want better stats than those to make an argument. Toughest minutes out of any defenseman on the Oilers doesn't mean much considering their entire d-unit is pretty subpar. Blocked shots and hits don't really say anything about defensive play either. Douglas Murray is constantly near the top of the league in hits and blocked shots, and he belongs no where near this list.
