As others have said, if he can play between 70-82 games in Nashville I think he will put up something close to what Wilson had last season. I think his linemates will be a bit better than what Wilson had to work with, though, so I can see his assist total being a bit higher. 35-40pts isn't unreasonable for the guy. With that said, I'm with SLake. He made the team for two reasons: 1) he earned it with his play in preseason and how he worked in camp, and 2) Fisher is hurt so there was a spot for him. Unless he comes in playing so well that Poile can't justify sending him down simply because everyone else is waiver eligible I think he'll end up in Milwaukee when Fish comes back. On the flip side, if Bergfors doesn't work out then Smith could take his spot, and Bergfors can be a perma-scratch or waived.
