Again there is no reason to rush him at all.
While I totally agree that his physicality is severely lacking, Smith will just never be that sort of player. He won't ever be able to play that sort of game. Bring him up to the AHL to see if he can get used to the higher level of physical play. If it is obvious after 15-20 games that he can't take it, you can always send him back down the the WHL or to the Cutthroats.
