The difference is Smith has developed and has locked down an NHL roster spot despite being 2 years younger. Hell, if Babs had his way Smith would have been in the lineup as a 23 year old. Lashoff is getting significant ice time as a 22 year old. You cannot whine about prospects not being given a chance, as there are several guys getting ice time.
Why hasn't Kindl locked down a spot on a terrible defense?
Again, you're literally writing rebuttals to your argument in your own posts.
You're being obtuse. He is getting top 6 time due to Sammy, Bert and Mule being injured.
No, not really. He's fifth in overall ice time per game, and just behind Bertuzzi in PP ice time per game and 7th overall in ESTOI per game.
