He's not the sole problem, but he's also No kind of solution to anything. He can't skate, isn't phsical and can't bring much to the table.

Will Smithson be a major upgrade? No, but he's an upgrade on Smyth in that respective role and he can bring something to the table that Smyth can't consistantly.

The Problem with Ryan Smyth is he's being counted on for anything and he's Done. I sincerely hope he has the sense to retire at the end of the season, because another year of this level play, or likely worse, would be very embarrassing.
