I fully understand your point. And if Poile signs proven top six guys Wilson and Smith will still get there chance under Lavy's system to prove that they can be larger contributors. But understand they had plenty of offensive chances under the old regime. I think Wilson has the talent to play a bigger role, he showed moments of brilliance but why he could not put it together more often I have no clue. I took alot of heat for being critical of Smith but at days end he still continues to struggle at finishing. And because he lead the forwards in scoring last year here is of little consequence. Someone had to lead the forwards. But his numbers last year were at best second line numbers on a good team. He will have to repeat or improve those numbers to move up on the depth chart in my opinion.
