If free agents and prospective trade targets with NMC's see and hear fans trashing even the most loyal players they will probably hesitate to come here.
I can't help but Kings fans thought the same when they traded him for Colin Fraser, who amazingly became more useful than Smyth when he left...
Smyth coasted for a ton of games this year. It's a pretty sad year when Corey Potter and Brian McGratton manage to outscore you. They have a combined... what, 12 NHL goals?
