Make no sense lol. If smith had 1 year left I’d be down with it but that extra year paying a bottom 6 forward that much could cause issues in cap space to sign cat and strome. Eh move for the now cuz we have space to sign perlini but a clusterf**k of forwards now.
If this was the best Stan could get...why didn't he just waive AA first? You could have "seen the market speak" and maybe not even had a $3.25M cap hit. Stan would have known for sure rather than taking on Smith. While Smith is $1.25M less...he's also a worse player with a modified NTC.
