A bit of sarcasm with truth in that. Id rather have Reilly Smith to be frank.

Fair enough. I just think this trade fits both teams needs, especially with this allowing Tuch to play top 6 minutes

Smith is worth way way more than Risto. Terrible move for VGK

I get that Risto has been a better defenseman than his team's results over the last few years. He would likely help. But I only like this deal at the deadline - not now. And I'm not sure you want to hurt the 3rd line offense that much but taking Tuch off that line.

Can someone please sell me on why Reilly Smith would not have Buffalo on his no trade list? Everyone and their mother has had some form of this trade for the past week. I don't get why so many Vegas/Buffalo fans think that he would go there especially with how things have gone for him in Vegas.
