Smid is a leader on and off the ice. I was really impressed when I heard that he took time to pick Paajarvi up from the airport and then take him out for lunch when he came to town for the first time for the summer rookie camp. That was in July. Hardly his job.
I certainly agree that Smid is a top candidate on the back end. It's a toss up really but I would like to see a veteran keep an A. Horcoff and Hemsky are easily outweighed by Hall and Eberle. Not to mention Whitney has valuable playoff experience from Pittsburgh. If not Whitney than Smid is an excellent choice.
