Love Smytty, has always been one of my favourites, but he's not doing the team any favours these days.
Smyth had a poor season last season, no doubt. He doesn't have the skills of our No. 1 overall picks, and he has lost a step since his heyday, but Smyth can still contribute in a lot of areas of the game. He's an experienced player, who creates traffic in front of net, gets a stick on any puck directed on net, and he works the boards nicely. Smyth is not a periphery player; he goes to the tough areas. You need those players and you need veteran players around to teach young players as well.
