This is just rediculous. Charles Wang is officially the worst owner in the league. His reasoning was that Smith wasn't working with the rest of the crew: Pat Lafontaine, Brian Trottier etc. Well guess what - Lafontaine quit right after Smith was fired.
I heard Garth Snow on sportsdesk tonight. It was hilarious, even he called himself a second rate goalie. I'm pretty sure that he'll be a "yes man" for the big guys. What kind of message is that sending? Maybe they are setting him up to be a scapegoat for a season that is already written off????
Not that I think Ted Nolan had much to do with this insane change but I gaurantee that this will only add fuel to the "Ted Nolans a GM Killer" fire.
Snow will get his first challenge as GM when he has to represent the club at Mike York's arbitration case this week. Should be interesting to have to rip into a former teammate in hopes of the arbitrator awarding a low salary.
