If it comes to 100 or 200k it probably doesn't make much difference. The third year is my big concern at this very moment. If Smith plays better this last bit of the season then 3 years is probably okay.

My big worry is that if they sign Smith to a 3 year deal and he stinks it up AND keep Labarbera we are super screwed. The way they keep Bissonette around is similar to the way they keep Labarbera. So right now I'm thinking they are gonna retain him. Ever since Tellqvist they seem to like having a strictly backup type guy around too.

Great Smith + Labarbera is workable. Even Average Smith probably. But as of right now I don't want those guys to be option 1 and 2.

Though really, if they actually jettison Labarbera and bring in another Burke Project till one of the prospects are ready my worry about Smith's deal goes away completely. Bring someone in who fosters competition. DM seems to like competition so I'd think he'd be willing to do that.
