I wouldn't be surprised to see Smyth as our 2nd line LW this season.

After all, he is the second highest paid LW after Hall, so why wouldn't he be considered for the role, given that he's played in the top 6 for most of his career?

He doesn't have to worry too much about MacT bringing in any real competition for the spot, and it will simply be handed to him.

That's just the way it is in this organization. We have (i) the most useless management group and (ii) the worst veteran players in the league, and these factors, more than any others, explain our record over the last 7 or 8 seasons.
