Smolinski will add some much needed depth and another scoring threat up the middle, especially since Kesler is lost for the year after having hip surgery and Chouinard has been one big bust.
I like it. I don't like trading away all these high draft picks, but maybe Nonis can dish off Bulis for a second or third rounder as well. You never know, the sooner the deadline approaches teams in search of a little extra firepower may be willing to cough up something like that for a fast winger with a scoring touch.
