Sadly I've missed some games recently so I can't comment on Smith's play. Before this recent road trip I thought he was playing well, but could use some work on the defensive side of things. However, he oozes offensive potential and he's only a sophomore. He'll bounce back.

I think Barry is hard on him because he has high expectations out of him. The fact that he wasted no time sending him down, rather than just scratching him shows that. I think his ceiling is as high as Wilson's. Wilson survived the Barry Trotz treatment. Smith will too.

One thing that bothered me during the lockout was his decision to play overseas rather than with Milwaukee. Well someone's decision, not sure who. I don't see the logic there unless he wasn't allowed to for some reason. He would have greatly benefited playing an NHL style with his own teammates.
