Is that what the Chicago board is saying?
He's only a disappointment to people who had unrealistic expectations (Smith should contend for Calder!!)

Anybody who watched him with a smidge of honesty knew he had defensive issues..which is why the Q/S pairing was hated before the first puck was dropped.

it was also strange that Smith didn't get PP time when everyone was healthy, with Babs deciding to give the time to CC and The Golden Nose.Wonder. It sure didn't seem like Babs was giving Smith the chance to play to his strengths.

But Maybe Babcock is trying to mold him into defensive guy.
