from the Philly News,
Neither coach John Stevens nor general manager Paul Holmgren gives much of a hint to what they are thinking, but each concedes that Smith will be given significant consideration.
“He’s certainly going to get some consideration and there are a lot of scenarios that we’ve already discussed. We’ll come up with the guy that we all feel comfortable with,” Steven said yesterday.
For Smith, the 33-year-old veteran who was traded to the Flyers with Joffrey Lupul for Joni Pitkanen and Geoff Sanderson, the “C” is not something on his mind as much as making a significant impact as a player.
“I just want to go out and play,” Smith said yesterday after he was formally introduced to the media and handed his game jersey by Holmgren. “It’s a new start and a new challenge and I’m looking forward to what’s coming.”
