I remain cautiously optimistic. Bobby Smith is sitting on a nice chunk of gate money from last year's run...
The article makes it seem like he was just too good to pass up on, but I'm also leaning towards cautiously optimistic. Plus, on top of the gate money, Bobby Smith is also sitting on however much he made in his 1000+ NHL games. Gotta love having an owner who understands hockey, and isn't afraid to spend his money.

Also, just noticed Eichel is a late '96 birthday, not even eligible until the 2015 NHL Draft, and they're talking about him playing immediately on our second line. I'm really interested to actually see this kid play.
