Smith will be very hard to trade with that contract unless he gets better. He's still a good prospect and maybe a stint in Milwaukee will get his confidence back and he'll improve. His 2 weeks will be up after the deadline so they can bring him back up without worrying about roster space as he'd have to clear waivers to stay in Milwaukee longer.
Looks like Gill will be back tomorrow which will help our PK. I suspect we'll go with 7 D to ease Gill back in the lineup and see if he improves our 3rd pairing with Ellis.
Hornqvist was skating with the team today as well which is good news.
