This is in terms of career and peak not if you would trade these players today. Both are known as Captain Canada because of their love representing their country and both are known as gritty two way players who are great leaders. I have broken this down year by year each player was in the league in the 95/96 season for good. Smyth played 3 games the year before but I wont count that year. 95/96 Smyth: 48GP 2G 9A 11P Doan: 74GP 7G 10A 17P Both started off with a rough rookie season... I consider this a tie. 96/97 Smyth: 82GP 39G 22A 61P Doan: 63GP 4G 8A 12P Smyth wins here by a land slide. Almost 40 goals in his sophmore season was really impressive. 97/98 Smyth: 65GP 20G 13A 33P Doan: 33GP 5G 6A 11P Smyth wins again with a 20 goal season compared to Doan. 98/99 Smyth: 71GP 13G 18A 31P Doan: 79GP 6G 16A 22P Both put up very small numbers this year but Smyth gets the edge based on twice as many goals and more points in less games. 99/00 Smyth: 82GP 28G 26A 54P Doan: 81gp 26g 25a 51p Very close this year. Slight edge to Smyth based on more goals and points. 00/01 Smyth: 82GP 31G 39A 70P Doan: 76GP 26G 37A 63P Again we see similar numbers but Smyth is still a hair above Doan in terms of Offensive output. 01/02 Smyth: 61GP 15G 35A 50P Doan: 81GP 20G 29A 49P Despite playing in more games and having 1 less point I think Doan has a better seaon than Smyth with a 20 goal season. 02/03 Smyth: 66GP 27G 34A 61P Doan: 82GP 21G 37A 58P Just looking at the numbers Smyth wins this year but missing 16 games also has to be considered. Doan brings more than offense and I'd rather have Doan for the whole season then Smyth for only 66 games. 03/04 Smyth: 82GP 23G 36A 59P Doan: 79GP 27G 41A 68P Doan wins this year with more goals and points despite playing in 3 less games. 05/06 Smyth: 75GP 36G 30A 66P Doan: 82GP 30G 36A 66P In terms of season I give the edge to Smyth. He helped Edmonton reach the playoffs while the Coyotes missed it. Very similar numbers however. 06/07 Smyth: 71GP 36G 32A 68P Doan: 73GP 27G 28A 55P Edge to Smyth who was traded to the Islanders at the end of the season and helped them make the playoffs. 07/08 Smyth: 55GP 14G 23A 37P Doan: 80GP 28G 50A 78P Doan easily wins this year. Smyth has a rough start to his career in Colorado. 08/09 Smyth: 77GP 26G 33A 59P Doan: 82GP 31G 42A 73P Doan wins again as Smyth disapoints for the Avs. 09/10 Smyth: 67GP 22G 31A 53P Doan: 82GP 18G 37A 55P Doan wins again as he stays healthy while both players help their team make the playoffs for the first time in a long time. 10/11 Smyth: 75GP 21G 23A 44P Doan: 67GP 18G 38A 56P Right now edge to doan who has 12 more points than Smyth. Playoffs: Smyth career point totals: 87GP 26G 28A 54P Smyth has also reached the Stanley Cup finals once and has won several playoff series in his career. Doan: 35GP 7G 7A 14P Has yet to win a single round in the playoffs. International: Smyth won the gold in 02 for Canada and both have represented their countries on numerous occasions. Verdict: 7 seasons for Smyth and 7 for Doan and a tie. The tie break is playoffs where no contest Smyth wins hands down. Very similar careers between the 2 however.
