If we're going to punish all the guys who didn't play under the current rules and systems, we may as well just rename this the "All-Time 1970s-present day Draft".
Nonsense. All I'm saying is that in this role, Cashman is a known commodity, and Smith is a projection. Smith has all the tools to be a good forechecker, and I think he would probably be good in that role, but we know that Cashman was great at specifically this job. It is nothing more than placing more value in the certain than the uncertain. Surely this does not go against the spirit of the draft.
