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.
Sorry paying him 4.25 is the worst of the 2 options. I'd rather go with a gap for a season than be stuck over paying a guy not worth the money for many (Horcoff). This team needs to stop bleeding cap space to players. He's on crack asking for 4.25 and any team would be on on crack paying him that with decreasing cap space.
