Prediction about the Dwarves and Smaug **SPOILERS** Can't Post

We know that Peter Jackson, based on his recent comments, will invent a fight scene between the dwarves and Smaug. By extension, I think that this confrontation will be what cracks off some of the armor encrusted on his belly, creating the bare patch on his left breast. Why? Two reasons:
1. It would make the dwarves look rather weak and ineffective not to have them do any significant damage to the dragon despite a fight scene involving all of them working together. This would not gel with their efficacy on display in AUJ
2. Being the noble, heroic figures that they are, it makes sense for the narrative to give them a part in Smaug's death. 
3. Having partial credit for Smaug's death makes the dwarves easier to root for later on in the story, ie the Arkenstone fiasco. 
 
How do I feel about this? I like it, honestly, but only in lieu of the changes to the dwarves. If the dwarves were the same characters from the book, I wouldn't care whether they had anything to with Smaug's death. 

What do you think? Am I right or wrong?
