OK, now you're getting at what I was interested in. If Guptill is indeed even better than Smith 1v1 and with his puck skills then we have a really exciting prospect. I don't think there's much doubt Guptill will be better down low and in a cycle, for that reason I'd agree that he's a safer prospect. R. Smith is going to have to be a top-6 player most likely. Which I think he's capable of doing.

One last thought, although I'm not directly comparing the 2 players -- Benn was also described as a one-trick goal-scoring pony and a guy who mainly seemed to be just good at finding the soft spots in defenses. Those are some of the biggest indicators for future success IMO.

Valuable skill -> "getting open" Reilly does it about as well as anyone in the cupboard.

What do you make of last season's burning of an ELC year? What do you think were the true intentions there?

*Shrug* I've never asked. Next time I have a chat with someone on the inside I'll ask. Maybe just to avoid all the contracts expiring at the same time? That's my best guess, but it lacks complexity...
