At this stage, I'd be fine with bringing in Smithson on a tryout contract. I'm pretty confident Lander would beat him out in camp but if not, it doesn't hurt to have a veteran option available in the event that he tanks. Acton could be an option but it seems like he has basically zero offensive upside and would purely be a faceoff/defensive player (which is what MacTavish criticized our bottom six for last season).
