Report Curious case of Rasmus Dahlin in The Aud Club Posted April 7 1 hour ago, Curt said: Just a note to throw out there. People are kind of blaming Steve Smith for Dahlin’s, I’ll say stunted, development the past two years. One thing that I had forgotten was that Smith was actually on Housley’s staff as well during Dahlin’s rookie year. So, we are not only seeing Dahlin without Krueger, but we are seeing Dahlin for the very first time without Smith as his defense coach. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the season goes for him. I’m optimistic so far. For the record I've been calling for Smith to be fired prior to him staying onboard with RK. Nearly every single D that came here and played under Smith during his tenure here have regressed or disappointed. He should not have been retained with RK and so glad he is gone. I'll be interested to see how the next assistant does with our D but it can't be worse then Smith.
