If management is really high on Klefbom's ability to step right in, something has to give. Smid has more value than N. Schultz.
If the Oilers dealt Smid for a 3rd liner, MacT deserves to be fired on the spot.
I'm not even a big Smid fan, i think he's a bit overrated but trading a top 4 Dman for a 3rd liner is a big step backwards.
Yes, Klefbom and eventually Nurse and Marincin are waiting in the wings but that doesn't make Smid expendable.
You trade players like N. Schultz for 3rd liners, not Smid.
