Smith - #1 goaltender, expects to be paid like one.
You haven't watched him this year, have you? There's a reason he hasn't been re-signed yet and it's because he may have been a one-year wonder.

He's playing with zero confidence and letting in LOADS of soft goals. His positioning has been awful and his rebound control atrocious. In 25 games his save % is .900 and his GAA is 2.86. He has 4 shutouts (1 since Feb. 18), otherwise is GAA 3.51. Since March 1 his save % is .880. He's given up 3 or more goals in 14 of his 25 starts. With a better backup he'd have a lot less games played this year. It's going to be a big gamble if he gets anything north of $3M over 3 years. He won't get it from the Coyotes so I'm not trying to scare everyone away so I can slip in and get him. Just be warned!
