I just saw that too on the Score. Can you belive it? Apparantley Garth Snow retired today and is taking over. Maybe Smith wasn't working out as a puppet to Milburry and Snow will do as he is told.

Lets put this into practise here: Pick a team, take its backup goalie and make him the teams GM.

Mika Noronen, GM of the Vancouver Canucks. Sounds kinda crazy to me.

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.

This organization is screwed.

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.
