Neil Smith Fired.

Neil Smith finally set a record: shortest stint as GM in the NHL! (Unconfirmed.) My surmise? They told him to quit drinking. Heh.

UPDATE:

At a time like this, all you can do is quote Slapshot. “Trade me right fucking now.” Is what I would be telling my agent if I was on the Islanders. This is a terrible, terrible joke. Garth fucking Snow? It’s obvious he’s just a figurehead, and Milbury is still running things.

Let’s see… Neil Smith… Cup winning GM… how many active GMs can say that? Few… versus Garth Snow–zero management experience! And Patrick Roy wants to try his hand in juniors before he comes up to the NHL?!

Heh. This is worse than the fishstick jersies.
