Reilly Smith Gets A Five-Year Extension With The Florida Panthers

SUNRISE, Fla – Florida Panthers General Manager Tom Rowe announced today that the Panthers have signed forward Reilly Smith to a five-year contract extension. As per club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

...but all the idiots think this team is going to move and is losing money.

Do all these extensions Florida signed settle this debate once an for all. The team has a sweetheart lease and is owned by the same company that manages the arena. They are very profitable despite what Forbes thinks.

15 players locked up next year for $59M and they will have to pay $4.5-5M AAV for Jonathan Huberdeau (23 yr old RFA next year)...

The trade of Jimmy Hayes for Smith was a steal for the Panthers. Smith, Trocheck &  Jokinen make up a pretty good second line.
