Plays well on the PK, but can't play on the PP and will struggle to put up 15 points a season. Carle's resume is much closer to $5.5 per than Smid's is to $5m.
They may be different players, but they are both generally #3 guys. 5M for a good #3 like Smid who can play a Top pairing role is decent value.

EDIT: Also, I doubt he makes 5M anyway. My guess would be somewhere around 4M, similar contract to Gleason.
