Getting Quincey for Smyth is right now looking like a great move by the Avs!
Which is exactly what I said when the trade was made. He was playing the #2 role(minutes wise) in LA on a solid defensive team. Smyth is a bottom tier 1st liner/good 2nd liner with average speed and average defensive awareness. Getting a top pairing defenseman for him is a GREAT trade.
gotta say, hated it at the time, but props to the shermanator, it seems to be working out so far
Started liking it after first two game of the season. He just works better with this team. Smyth was often left alone by us last year when he jumped up on the offensive zone. Quincey is just ...right there.... almost all the time
