Smyth would still make the 4th line on virtually any team in the league still. Sure, he's lost a step. But Christ, Luke Richardson, Sean O'Donnell, Michal Handzus, Adam Oates, Lyle Odelein, and on it goes all played into their late 30s. There's no reason Smyth can't play well, at the very least, on the 4th line. And if he's willing to be paid 3rd or 4th line dollars, I'd sign him for another year, provided that he doesn't suffer pneumonia or something. Still a useful, though certainly limited, NHL player.

And as long as the club employs plugs like Brown, Gadzic, or MacIntyre, Smyth could likely stay ahead of them (on hockey ability at least) well into his 40s (let's hope that our team improves beyond any of them though).
