Bobby Clarke and Serge Savard are the only two (If I recall correctly) who became GM directly after retired as players. And they did a good job isn't it? So who knows? Wang sure looks weird and out of place, but Snow may be intelligent enough for the job. We'll see. If he is surrounded by good business people and can take only care of hockey matters, he may be adequate. No farther than here, Gainey isn't the one negociating contracts (I can't recall the guys' name). he may be the one dictating the "architecture" of the salary total, but he's no business man. And it's Timmins who's in charge of the scouting. So if Snow is intelligent enough to surround himself that way, we may be surprised.
Bobby Clarke and Serge Savard both members of HHOF, both team captains and winners of multiple Stanley Cup's.
