Not really. Sometimes you hate to be right. The only thing we can hope is that Smith can pull it together FAST. It is too much to expect guys to come from the college game to the NHL and be a success. This is whats still holding Wilson back, it was a big thing for Geffrion, and Smith. Watson would be the same way they need that time in the AHL. The level of play in college is nowhere close to the NHL, the leap from AHL to NHL is too much for many players. The best thing for Smith would be staying in Milwaukee the rest of the year and come to camp better for it. He is on a bigboy contract next season if he can't cut it by Jan next year his career here will be over.
