    Put me down for Smith. The Coyotes lost some pieces but they still have a great system in place and it will do wonders for Smith's peripheral stats.

    Ward gets my vote. Still think he's a great goaltender, and while Smith had a stellar year, I'm more inclined to trust Ward and his proven status.

    Agree with Bondon here. I really really wanted to vote for Smith. One year is just not enough time to be considered proven.

    Wards one of the most underrated tenders out there. He's elite.

    Last time I said that Smith is solid but when he goes against the NHL's true elite, that is where he falls. Ward for me.

    I voted Smith but it was a tough call. I guess I'm a believer in Smith actually being as good as he showed last year.....maybe he doesn't repeat the numbers exactly but I think he'll be close. Even with the expected improvement from Carolina, and Ward being a very good goalie imo, I just think Smith will have the better numbers between the two.
