I originally thought Carolina had that right on him when we put him on waivers, to claim him off and send him immediately to the minors (it was actually Pittsburgh as his last team, which makes complete sense), but we now have that right. If we claim him and nobody else puts in a claim, we can send him to Milwaukee without putting him back on waivers.

Sending Smith down has the exact same motive as sending Halischuk down for a conditioning assignment. If Smith gets the message and comes back as motivated and consistently intense as Halischuk has been, he's going to be a treat to watch, because he has way more skill than Halischuk.
