I want Smith skating top 6 with responsible wings right now, but he certainly can't be "relied" upon now to make the right decisions, and in the specific case of the PP - his dangles and pushes result in too many turnovers where the best we get is they dump the puck down behind Peks and we gotta' start over.
Yes, has to play, learn from mistakes, etc. - PP isn't that place; skating with RClune probably isn't it, either.
A dump in is essentially a turn over. We'll just have to agree to disagree on this one.
