I can see Avs signing Smith in the offseason, but
I can see the Avs send him for his 20th year.
No need to rush a prospect like him.
I see no reason to keep Smith in the WHL next year. He has proven about all you can against that level of competition. It will be time for him to step up to the AHL and to see what he can do on a higher level. Though Lake Erie is going to be packed with centers and defensive prospects.
For Centers there will be: Sgarbossa, Malone, Hishon (if he stays healthy), Heard, Smith, Carey, and Connolly. Now Carey, Connolly, Hishon and somebody else will probably have to end up on the wing competing with Agozzino (assuming the Avs sign him before somebody else) for top 6 minutes.
Defense will have Siemens, Elliott, Barrie (assuming he doesn't stick with the Avs), Beaupre, Gaunce, Lauridsen (assuming the Avs sign him before somebody else), and likely Stollery.
