Or he might just play LW.

But anyway, I wonder about Smith. Some nights I think we couldn't win without him, other nights I wonder why he's floating around looking so bored.
Yeah... Smith is a tough one to figure out at times. There were stretches off last season where he looked like the best 3rd line C in the NHL. Then there are times where he looks like a marginal NHL player...

As with some of our other big bodies(Greening) I believe Zack needs to play aggressive to be usefull.... Cant just coast around. Needs to engage ppl physically. I wasnt a fan of him on LW during the playoffs but that may be where he ends up??
