His minutes have been increased, stsrting in the last quarter of last year and this year. If we had a true first line that could carry the team on many of the nights it would allow time for Smith to develop on a second or 3rd line. This team does not have that and to think you can out hm in The 1st line role to develop is a recipe for even further disaster for him. I sid it before he may be better than I project him but he is nowhere near the caliber most here think he is.
And the scouting reports on Gaustad scream "top 6 guy?"
I can certainly get that you're not sold on the guy, but do you seriously not see his hard work, puck handling and chances he's generating? Am I just so enamored with Smith I'm the only one seeing it?
I'm not saying he's the second coming of anyone....but he, Wilson and Borque are the people I see making competent plays and taking shots that hit the net, even if they don't go in. And that's more than I can say for the rest of them.
