Steal for Boston. He’ll hit 20+ goals, can play up and down in the lineup, 2nd PP. Great signing, especially for the price

Great signing for the Bruins. Should be a good player for their 2nd or 3rd line on a cheap contract.

What an obnoxiously good deal. Ottawa had supposedly inquired about him, and I thought he'd have been a great vet for them to add.

Great fit for Boston. Getting a guy who plays like he does is a great fit, and it cost relatively little.

Who doesn't like Craig Smith? Nobody. Everyone likes this guy and wants him to do well and he landed int he spot that I think needs him and he will do the best. Value signing for sure but plays like a Boston Bruin already. Good match for both sides of this deal.

Great signing by Sweeney. Versatile 2nd/3rd liner with a very cheap aav for a player of his caliber. BOS rw looks very deep now. Well Done.

Slam dunk of a deal. Pittsburgh and Montreal just paid big in assets for wingers they hope can be as good as Craig Smith has been year in and year out. Smith was probably the best winger available after Hall, and definitely best value available. Nice move.

at that cost and contract I'm kind of pissed the penguins didn't go after him.
Great signing for Boston who is always looking for forward help every offseason

No Pietrangelo (and Sweeney confirmed it). Didn't answered about Hall and it's believed Bruins are interested by his services. Obviously, will need to be very creative and make several moves to fit him.

How the Sharks didn't offer this guy a contract is beyond me. He's exactly what they needed. Well done B's.

He is but he likely starts in the AHL and then we'll see. Adding 5v5 scoring was the priority.
