I know Babcock said this in an interview, but the fact remains that when he did have Smith available to him he either sat him as a healthy scratch or played him very sparingly on the 3rd pairing.
When it comes to younger players, they have a very limited window to make an impression on Babs or they are pushed aside for veterans. Its happened to Mursak, Kindl, and Nyquist as well.
