I am not a Smith fan. At best I see him as a 3rd liner. I have read his scouting reports. Looked at his stats from 2004 to today. Watching his play I agree with his speed and occosional puck handling ability. His shooting ability is truly lacking. He put up half a point a game last year, given. Currently he has a confidence problem, he is unproven if you look at the minutes he has been given this year and last he has been given a shot at producing. He has not held up this season. Is it the linemates ? that could well have somethin to do with it. But 5 points in 23 games and a -5 earns a reduction in playing time on a team that is struggling.

He may be better than I think but he is not as good as most here think either.
