And no, with Lidstrom and Kronwall QBing PP's Smith likely wouldn't have been on the PP. White goes with Lidstrom because of the right handed shot. Kronwall gets a forward. (Which I'm not a fan of, but Babcock has been doing it for years)
Smith would have got PP time that Ericsson didn't, so we are looking at 17 minutes per night. That is more than enough, and a better development path than yet another year stagnating in the AHL.

As for PP,

Lidstrom-White
Kronwall-Smith

He got 1:45 of PP time/game in his first 14 games. I'm not sure why you think he wouldn't get the same or even more as time goes on.
