I think I would rather have Horak and Broissoit than Smid and Roy.

So kudos MacT.
Marincin has stepped in and looked much better than Smid, so I don't think that trade hurt us this year at all. Plus marincin makes .850 m doing a better job then smid making 3.5 m. The biggest thing about the trade was the cap relief, hopefully we use it to sign nikitin, or make a Perron like trade.

Smid has been in free fall since his great 2011 season, sucks to see as he was my favorite oiler
