I don't like the D because it puts too much pressure on Belov and Klefbom. Fistric isn't good enough to play top 4 minutes if one of them fails. Scuderi probably could but 2 of Smid-Scuderi in the top 4 isn't good enough puck movement IMO. Also if Fistric is on the 3rd pair i really don't like it. Edmonton isn't going to be able to move the puck out of the zone on the boards as effectively as a team like LA so i;m not crazy about 3 defensive guys at a time being in there, i'd like a unit that can move the puck better. Don't get me wrong you need those guys for the PK and in shutdown situations but Smid is largely the answer as he's elite or close to it from a purely defensive standpoint.
