What scenario makes it possible to deal either of those defensemen?

If in a package for a #1 defenseman, then you trade whichever one plays on the same side as this defenseman (Smid = LD, Petry = RD).

It's important to note that RD is our weakness right now. Everyone but Petry and J.Schultz is an LD. So my first logical choice is to deal Smid.

Then there's the skill-set. Both Petry and Smid played tough minutes and kept their heads above water - but it's Petry that shows the versatility to play PP, ES, and PK with great ability. To me he's our clear-cut #1 defenseman right now.
