He is playing very well after a sloppy first couple of weeks. Looked like he was trying not to get hurt expecting the NHL season to start. As it became more clear he needed to commit to the AHL he has really been a force. Some of those points are basically going away by making the right play. Teams are allowing Billins all the freedom in the world on the first PP and really cheating towards Smith. He is making the smart hockey play and the team is winning but he is basically the third assist in a lot of plays. His defense looks a little better and he is dangerous offensively could use a couple of breaks but he is playing well.
