Well I'm sure we'll know the reason soon enough. Everyone is coming up with their own wild conclusions but no one really knows anything yet. It could be health related, Smith could be involved in some wrong doings, or maybe he pissed in his bosses coffee?
have you seen the stupid moves mad mike has mad? the guy stilll plays a prominent role with the organization and he was probably barking asinine orders to smith, who refused to oblige...essentially getting fired.
that's how i see it.
"okay neil, trade Dipietro, Zhitnk, Robert Nilsson, Grebeshkov, Okposo and 2 first rounders for sergei federov....you see neil, for you to keep your job you must do something to overshadow my yashin trade"
On TSN.ca they say they've hired GARTH FN SNOW as his replacement.
Well, let's hope Smith comes back to work for TSN, at least, and decides to be a bit more forthcoming than usual about all the hijinx on the Isle. A weird statement by the owner about having Snow lined up for months? If they wanted a puppet, why hire Smith in the first place? Bizarre. Well, if it ultimately means one more team out of the Eastern Conference playoff race due to sheer managerial chaos, then hey, I'm all for it. I wonder what Tom Poti and the rest of Smith's signings are thinking? Happy with your new contracts boys?
