I also don't understand why we'd want to do the Coburn/Smid swap
I really like Smid but he will never be as tough as Coburn. Coburn has his own limitations but he will would bring a more rounded game than Smid has right now. I hate to say that because Smid has got such a warriors mentality and attitude wise he is one of the best in the biz. That being said I highly doubt this rumoured trade between the Flyers and the Oilers goes down anyways. L. Schenn would be the guy I would rather target, has a lot of skill but is just struggling to put it all together. 2 cents.
