Going back to my question, is he a top pairing shutdown guy?

I've just check his time on ice: he is 6th on the Oilers with the worst plus/minus with Oilers, he looks like bottom pairing to me.
In no way is Potter a top pairing guy in Edmonton. Potter is a career minor leaguer who actually played very well for about 20 games last year.

Smid's partner is Petry. He is not available for Bishop.

I believe he drafted Smid and tried acquiring him during Heatley's **** fest.

Smid is a pending UFA and Bishop's a pending RFA. What would be needed? Would the price be cheaper if it were around the deadline and Edm knew Smid would be walking at seasons end?
Afer the big 5, Smid is probably considered to be as much a part of the Oilers core as anyone. He loves the city. I doubt there is any way he walks.
