Gorton not too big to admit his mistake on this one.

Meaning
1) No one is safe
2) He's probably not too happy

Sadly, if you put Smith on a team with a real system instead of this run and gun horse**** AV plays he probably would become solid.

NYRs could have waived him at any point, right? Maybe just sick and tired of seeing Smith waltz thru the season. Seen the letter from Slats and Gorts about tough to say good-bye to familiar faces.... Smith is not one them !!!
Agree AVs schemes while better than Torts circle the wagons leaves holes all over the ice. Smith was not great in Detroit and this season we seen why.... all eat no work!

To me Smith was a limited skill set defenseman, who had a good few weeks in the playoffs, but it almost seemed like he tried to do far too much this year. The amount of times he overhandled the puck this season was criminal, and if he instead focused more of staying back and playing his man than trying to beat opposing players with the puck, perhaps he might be serviceable as a third pair d-man with occasional second pair responsibilities.

I don't agree that he'd become a dependable defenseman somewhere else, I think he is what he is, and perhaps signing the big contract made him feel he had to contribute more than he had been...whatever the case, this year has been one to forget.

it is hard to believe that the Smith we saw in last season's playoffs is the same guy we have been watching (and been scratched) this season.

It was a mistake to pay him that much. He’s a a sloppy third pair guy with some muscle at best. Over rated then over paid. Ranger management deserves the criticism.

Yeah, because Girardi didn't have a non existent skill set last year and is now solid on Tampa. You would think just once this board would actually blame a head coach or a system for some of the crap play of the players. Granted, I think Smith was a lazy dog in the off-season. However, this system has been leading to worse and worse defensive play the past 3 years from all the players. Forwards and defenseman.

I actually generally think AV is generally a good coach. The system point in my opinion is absolutely correct. It is not just the system but there is no plan B or C when plan A is compromised. The talk of maintaining structure is comical because from my perspective no structure is the inherent flaw! Not sure what the communication is during practice or meetings but structure has never been an attribute of this team. The run&gun with the speed&skill kept teams off-balance but when the team fell just slightly out of gear BaBoom!!! Even at the beginning of AVs tenure the antidote was get one turnover off the forecheck and we can collapse the NYR then we deal with Hank! No other plan exists no adjustment no appeal to the resources at your disposal. Other than that AV has a nice Win-Loss record.

Hey man, Just look at the AV thread......

We blame AV more than anyone else..

What do you think #FireAV stands for?

If AV were a good coach, everything after your first sentence would be corrected. It hasn't, and every year it has just gotten worse.

He has a good win loss record because of Hank and Luongo. They've covered up his bad coaching.

I did not love the trade last year.. and HATED the contract this summer... and when you add ****tenkirk to that blue line there are more holes than there should be. He will be in the line up in NYC again only because of the injuries and trades that are going to happen in the short term.
