What a load of garbage. If Smith has talent that is good enough to play well against NHL competiton then neither the line he is on nor the coaching system should prevent that talent from showing through. FFS Vern freaking Fiddler managed to prove himself to be an NHL caliber player despite playing on a low line and in Trotz's system. The fact is right now Smith is a classic tweener. He can dominate against AHL level players but cant quite hang with top line players in the NHL. It not like this is a unique situation. Geoffrion was looking like he was going to be just the same, and that didnt change when he went to Montreal.
