In the end I would consider him an equal replacement to Bryz, not an upgrade or a downgrade, and depending what happens in the playoffs yet he has a chance to become an upgrade. Based on contract alone he is an upgrade, but all things being equal otherwise it's a lateral move thus far.
easy to say now but i'd take smith over voukon 10 times out of 10 now......although i'm not sure smith's numbers would have been as good playing in DC

Agreed, I thought Smith would be good but wouldn't hold up for 60 games forcing Jason to play a ton...So happy to eat some crow!

As soon as we get an owner, he needs to be locked up for 3-4 yrs after next year.

Who? The owner, or Mike Smith?

If Smith gets us a deep playoff run, expect for him to get a fat extension.

It will be interesting to see the prodigy/mentor relationship play out with Visentin and Smith.

But only when Visentin steals the back-up role from LOL.

That contract is probably looking mighty good to Chicago right now.

I'm the dumbest poster in the boards. Haha. FACE. PALM.
