I think Mac T's point was about stagnation: players need a change of scenery. The players he identified as Hemsky and Horcoff. Both of those players still have a few years left to play hockey.

Smyth is in the twilight of his career. Whether he gets moved or not, his play will probably be about the same. There's a good chance he'll retire next season, whether it's the result of another injury or at the end of the year.

Different situations, I think.
