Taking a year where you’re not every day working the motion, it takes time to get back. When is that point? I wish I could give you a date. There’s no drop-down date. Can’t do it.

Speaking of point streaks, Smith hasn’t missed the score sheet during his past seven contests with a total of 12 points during that span. The line of Smith, Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson continues to defy all expectations and force us to admit they may be the best line in the NHL.

They have every piece in place on defense, so a depth player or two could be signed.

Don’t expect the Jaguars to shell out big money this March. — Mike DiRocco
