Kindl really deserves better but that is another story. I have no idea what they are doing there, but that one is much more concerning than Smith's situation. Because they were unhappy with him during his time moving up.

Ericsson has a lot of promise as a stay at home type and actually only started playing defense at Smith's current age pretty much. Some think Bodin Detroit's seventh round pick last year will make a similar move. Really his first extended run as a D-man was in Grand Rapids.
