And Brendan Smith is a perfect example of gettting little return on an ELC investment. Detroit has to negotiate a new contract with him after only 48 NHL games. Whereas the Flyers will have the benefit of seeing nearly 200 NHL games of Schenn and Couturier when it comes time to negotiate with them.
Brendan Smith is also a perfect example of being cost controlled in the sense that he only has a 48 game window of what he's done. He's not going to get a big contract on that window. No one will give him that.
