Just the information displayed, when you right click in the power tab that has all your powers and in the power description.  does normal 

 

Or is it supposed to be a Negative/Smashing attack like Tenebrous Tentacles or Black Star ?  Is it missing a damage component?

It appears that Umbral Torrent has a "Smashing" delivery tag attached to it. In other words, Smashing Defense and Negative Defense are both effective against Umbral Torrent even though it appears to only deliver Negative damage. That might be why is says smashing even though it may not apply any smashing damage. I have no idea if this is intentional, but it would explain the why smashing is in the summary.

90% sure this is because Umbral Torrent was repurposed from Torrent; on Defenders, it’s a low-damage power with high knockback meant for control. Blasters needed a little more AoE oomph when it was proliferated, so it was adjusted into more of a real attack. The smashing damage was removed to fit better thematically with the lowered knockback, but they must’ve missed the defense tag.
