I think people blamed him for Hall's struggles based on preconceived notions. He's done a good job through preseason and early on. People exaggerate his mistakes so much it's really embarrassing to read. I've always said at this point he should be a guy who's near the bottom in ice time at the end of the season but has the versatility to help you out all over the lineup. He can be an asset on special teams, and he can fill out a scoring line from time to time. One of the few guys in the bottom 6 who wasn't the problem last year too. Smyth's a pro and a player with an elite past, 3 best on best team Canada selections and in the conversation for a 4th. He's got more skill than he get's credit for a does the little things needed to create room for his teammates.
