There were plenty of more-talented prospects that could have got the playing time but Smithson got it probably on his effort alone.
On a side note, do these signings do anything to hinder Segal's chances of making the team this year? On an even lesser note, what are Koalska's chances of ever stepping on the ice in Nashville? Thanks!
if anything, i think these signings INCREASE segal's chances, as I think both Severson and Smithson are to restock the farm. With those two on the lower lines, Segal will move into an increased role. He was easily one of the best(if not the best, all around) at rookie camp, and the team loves what he brings to the table.
Koalska joined the Admirals last year, but didn't play a game...so he could be there, this year.
