Why eliminate one of your better assets to move up a few spots in a draft? We dont know what those other guys are going to do at the NHL level. In fact, we dont know what Smith is going to do at that level. What we do know is Smith is getting his feet wet and he shows signs of being a real good player combined with his mistakes. He over skates things. Typical with younger guys getting used to the speed at the NHL level. He's going to be fine. Whether that ends up being top 4 or top 2 is the only thing that will sort itself out.
You dont move guys like him to move up 7-10 spots in a draft.
