Smith will play at least as much as last year ... 30 might be a bit high, but somewhere in that range maybe.
Loui Eriksson will get a shot again this season, but I (for one) am not getting my hopes up. He played with Modano last season for about a month and failed (I'm not inclined to think it was Modano's fault), so maybe he gets another shot at that or he skates on Ribeiro's line this year (with Morrow???).
If I was going to take either of them at the end of a draft, I take Smith without a second of hesitation.
