Pysyk might, but the Oilers already need a lot of help on the blueline. Trading one of the three proven NHL D we have for a future piece, despite his projected upside, is a bit like one step forward two steps back.

Don't think Smid is traded/fails to resign, but if they do move him, its for immediate help in another area of need (Center).
