I dunno maybe I'm wrong but IMO the guys with the Ice time are the ones who are the problem. IE: Smid, what is goal? Block with face? Shoot puck where? What is rush the puck mean? Ok, dump puck up Ice back to opponant, and try block shot again.

I love the guy he is hillarious but he should not be getting 1st line D, and needs some serious new habits. There is a reason why all the guys upstairs talk about is getting a legit #1 or #2 D-Man.
Did you really try to tell everyone here that a top 4 d, who blocks a **** ton of shots and one that everyone would love on their respective team is not coachable, nor a very valuable asset to any team? He is not a #1 or 2 d... everyone here knows we still need one so he can excel in the 2nd pairing.
