It sounds like there aren't any hard feelings over the things said in Craig Smith's arbitration hearing.
Smith agreed to a five-year, $21.25 million contract with the Nashville Predators, but that contract was inked after the arbitration hearing, but before the judgment. Typically meeting with an arbitrator is seen as undesirable because it puts the team in a position to criticize the player's abilities in front of said player. On that Smith said, "I'm my worst critic. ... I've probably said worse things (about) myself than what I heard (in) there." Of course, the fact that he made a long-term commitment with the Predators after the hearing is a good indicator that he's still happy with the franchise. Jul 23 - 8:06 AM
