My problem with Smith is he is on the wrong team for his development. Trotz is never going to trust him fully. Smith needs to play center, but he never will under Trotz. On top of this, he seems to be one of the first to feel the wrath of Trotz should something go wrong no matter what goes wrong. It seems like if Legwand, Fisher, etc is responsible for a turnover, Smith gets the blame even if he wasn't even on ice. This also just seems to get worse as time goes on and it is doing nothing but sending him into a downward spiral.
