He is cheaper(not by much), but who's to say he wouldn't do any worse? Smyth is having a bad season, like you said, that doesn't mean he's going to be like this next season, or the season after that. To trade Smyth now and replace him with a slightly cheaper Friesen makes little sense IMO.
How does Lowe as a GM try to explain to the fans that he traded fan favorites, Ryan Smyth and Jason Smith, but he A.) Didn't save much money, and B.) Replaced Smyth with a slightly cheaper, but less noteworthy player in Jeff Friesen. Sorry, but that's just not going to fly in Edmonton.
