This is why HF Oil doesn't manage the Oilers.
He isn't regressing, we've just learned that he can't play 25 minutes a night, and that's what we need the most.
Smid at 20 minutes a night is an absolute beast.
Similarly, we saw that with Steve Staios. When he was playing over 20 min a night he was the worst D i've ever seen. At 18 minutes a night, he was one of the best #5 D in the league.
Same situation with Matt Greene in LA. at 17 min Ave TOI/Game he's pretty great. Any more than 20 min and he can't do it.
