I'm a big Occam's razor guy. My guess is Babcock doesn't think Smith is good enough to roam around like Brian Campbell. That's a pretty simple explanation.

Except that he seems to be on a tighter reign this season (thus far) than when he came up last year. It's almost like two different mindsets.

And, no, Babs has always been about systems and everyone knowing where they're supposed to go. Franzen is slowly becoming Homer.

I still find him to be one of the most predictable coaches in the NHL.
