at some point a player has to produce. period.
See Dupuis and Kunitz then. They are good players but teamed with Crosby have put up monster numbers.
It's the same discussion we've all had about Legwand for years and whether or not he was producing or not. It's not always about the ability of the players that someone is playing with but the chemistry they have. For a while Smith, SK and Clune had a thing going that I thought worked for one reason or another. Then they got broken up for whatever reason.
It would be nice for Smith to take the next step in his progression. I hope we can all agree on that.
