Smith isn't going anywhere. He will be a solid 2nd player and dependable in shootouts.
He however will not be a solid player if he is continually playing with other linemates with 0 offensive talent. Until he has regular minutes with 1st or 2nd line players we will see something similar to last year.
this was the same excuse we gave for guys like Gamache... at some point you have to be able to show something regardless of who your linemates are

that said, people arguing that we should trade (or more unbelievably, buy out) Smith are being way too premature... we dont need the cap space nor do we need the roster spot. Let him keep playing and developing...
