Mike Smith

31 years old, about to command around $5M on the market.

Career: 116-94-32
Careeer SV%: .913
Career GAA: 2.59
Career S/O: 23

James Reimer

25 years old, signed through next season for $1.8M

Career: 47-28-13
Careeer SV%: .913
Career GAA: 2.76
Career S/O: 8

There is almost NOTHING separating the two guys.... except Reimer is 6 years younger and much cheaper.

This makes no logical sense to trade him for Mike Smith. Like I said, when Smith was Reimers age he was a backup barely scrapping by in the NHL. Reimer has shown he's a capable NHL starter.

Oh, and the little fact that Reimer this season is 13-4-4 with a SV% of .920 while Smith is 11-10-3 with a SV% of .901 doesn't help your case either. Especially considering Smith plays in a defensive style system, etc.
