With General Manager Craig MacTavish in charge and a new bench boss in town, there were several additions and changes to the roster this summer. Veteran Ryan Smyth gave his thoughts on a few of the acquisitions this morning.

“Obviously there’s going to be a lot of new faces and a lot of key players that have been successful,” said Smyth. “(Andrew) Ference, obviously with the Stanley Cup also his playoff performance. Boyd Gordon with his faceoff abilities and his defensive role, specialist.

These guys are an addition to help the hockey club, and (MacTavish) has done a good job thus far. Now it’s all for us to go out and do the right things and get the wins on the board.”
