2017 Free Agency Target: Should the Montreal Canadiens be interested in Brendan Smith?

The search for blue-line help continues in Montreal. After a week of planning for the distant future of the team with the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, the free agency period looms on July 1. Marc Bergevin has gone on record stating that he wants to acquire another defenceman, even after he plucked David Schlemko off the Vegas Golden Knights roster for a fifth-round pick. While it’s unlikely he’ll find his white whale in free agency, he can bolster his second pairing with several available options. One of those options is former Red Wings and Rangers defenceman Brendan Smith, who is finishing...

NHL Draft 2017: Detroit Red Wings select Zach Gallant with No. 83 pick

2017 Rangers Report Card: Brendan Smith

2017 Rangers Report Card: Brendan Smith

Brendan Smith only played 18 regular season games and 12 playoff games in a New York Rangers’ sweater, but in that time he certainly made an impact. Just prior to the 2017 trade deadline, Smith was acquired from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for a 2017 third-round pick and 2018 second-round pick (from the Ottawa Senators that the Rangers received in the Mika Zibanejad trade). The Rangers defense struggled throughout the season, so general manager Jeff Gorton sought out Smith to strengthen the blue line. Although left-handed, Smith provided the stability the Rangers craved on the right...
