smith will almost certainly at lest go to arbitration this summer, in which cse he would be signed for at least one more season. That only means something if that contract is enforced in a post-CBA world. Not sure what happened last time in 94 for guys with years left on their contract, they probably just agreed to pro-rate all deals to 48 games, right?
