Lets say Smid is asking $4.25M/yr and people don't want to pay him that. So you trade him for picks and prospects.

Than what? How do you replace him? Free agency is fairly bare with regards to D-man this year. Trade won't come cheap for a top-4 D-man who plays similar to Smid.

We're in a bit of a bind. He's been one of our only quality D-man, trading him now would be a step back.
