But LaFontaine had advised Wang to take 48 hours before making any final decision about Smith. He then suggested that the owner let the dust settle and not name a replacement today, the source said. After Wang ignored both bits of advice, LaFontaine “decided this was not the right time and place for him,” the person said."

We cant know of course, but logic tells us thats most likely the case
For me it was the DiPietro scandal when prior to Rick's big vacation Snow was forced to keep him on the bench as the back up when he was obviously injured. No matter what the details were behind the move, I will never believe this was Garth's choice. IMO, it was Wang calling the personnel move, and it was so incredibly stupid... eh, words cannot even express the stupidity. And like you said, there are other bits of evidence as well of Wang getting involved on a level someone of his hockey ignorance level should avoid.

I agree with your entire post. I do have issues absolving Snow of all culpability in this, but in general the bad guy here is clearly Wang. I FEAR what we would wind up with if Snow left. Wang's gardener as GM? It wouldn't surprise me at all.
