Smith has already previously been mentioned as a guy in the mix. You really think the guy tied for the team lead in goals isn't an option the team is considering?
Uh, Matt Fraser leads the team in goals. Who has mentioned Smith? Gulutzan didn't mention him when asked specificially. Neither did Nieuwendyk when asked specifically. Maybe he'll come in and knock their socks off and make the team, but it appears they are looking for a specific type of player (size, grit, something else) and Smith doesn't fit the bill. A skilled, scorer might not be the hole they're looking to fill. If there was something in the top 6, it might be different.
