People love a good reunion story. They can't get enough of when a person leaves a place they've called home, only to return. It's happened with the likes of LeBron James and John Cena during the SAG-AFTRA strike, to name a few. One person that could be in this category is none other than the former Vegas Golden Knight, Reilly Smith.

One of the Original Misfits, he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the offseason for a 2024 third-round pick. Of course, this helped bring back both Adin Hill and Ivan Barbashev, who re-signed with the Golden Knights during the summer.

But it seems like life might have other plans in the wings. After all, life is a funny thing. When you let something go, you never know if it'll come back. With the Pens falling out of contention and the Vegas Golden Knights going strong, there's a possibility that we could see a Reilly Smith reunion in Sin City. But what would be the pros and cons of bringing him back?
