Ryan Smyth has been taking a lot of bad penalties of late.

Smyth has been called for six minors in the last four games, including two for slashing, two for hooking, a tripping and an interference call. These penalties may be caused by Smyth not being able to keep up with the play anymore, a possibility for the veteran who will turn 37 on Feb. 21. He has only a goal and two points in 12 games this season with a minus-three rating so it is very hard to recommend him at this time.
