Detroit expects these players to have specific roles with the team. Whether they are able to meet those expectations is another thing. As for the two current NHL superstars toiling in GR, let's give them some time at the NHL level before we start proclaiming them to be something bigger than they are projected to be.
Detroit still has to cut two players to make it under the roster limit. Once that's done you hover pretty close. It'd be pretty inconvenient if somebody was LTIR'ed or didn't come back from Euro-leagues. Regardless, as I said, just because somebody else is getting paid more than Smith doesn't mean he's getting a higher spot.

That'd be like saying Nyquist will only play half the season because Tootoo was signed during the offseason for $1.9M a season.

Considering Nyquist is playing better than his projection right now... Watched him in the NHL. Quite frankly was more impressed with him that I was with Smith. The only real knock on him was that he was so scrawny he was getting tossed around easily. I believe he put on something like 10-15 pounds during the offseason.

You're right...

Kronwall's the better defender IMO, but yeah, EJ has more value simply based off age.
