Smith curious about his new role Written by Seymour Buttz - March 13th, 2012

Bringing in Mike Smith to tandem with Semyon varlamov can open a whole new set of options for the Avalanche. But it could also cause a rift between the two as both vye for ice time.

The Colorado Avalanche shocked the hockey world when they acquired goaltender Mike Smith from Chicago in a wild 10 player trade. The deal opens the door to many things, one being a great crease prescence for years to come, however as both these goalies are proven in their respective fields, it can also prove difficult to keep both happy.

"I am curious to see how this might work out" said Smith "I was a backup in Chicago and now i come here and there is another solid goaltender so im not sure if we are going to rotate or what.... i hope i get a shot here to prove myself."

 

Smith was livid when he found out about the deal, but of course he since calmed down and thought it through. He is now happy to be here but still bitter towards the Hawks for dealing him to the worstteam in the league in the middle of a playoff push. 

"I feel betrayed in a sense, i was never even alerted that i was on the block, but whatever its behind me now. Im happy to be in Denver and this team has some nice pieces goign forward for sure."

Smith has had a solid career but never put up extraordinary numbers but he feels thats about to change. "I feel that i have learned so much over the last few seasons that i feel confident now that i can take the reigns of any team and run with them"

The Avalanche host the Vancouver Canucks tomorrow and it is expected that all the players will b in the lineup
