As a Leafs fan, I can tell you Smith probably isn't as bad as it looks. He's good with you guys and players love him. I wasn't a huge fan but I feel as though a lot of it was the Babcock dynamic as I live in Windsor and watched him coach much differently. He'd fit the Sens for the 3 years he's signed and likely move on afterward, Roy wouldn't exactly be the greatest anyways. You'll have a few extra mill to spend on players now anyways since Melnyk probably has an internal cap for the whole operation.

Smith is probably a better option than Roy for this young, fast team. I agree with the MelnykOut sentiment, but I believe them when they say it wasn't a money thing.

Still don't think it was the right Choice, (I really wanted Brad Shaw) but it's probably good they're going with someone new and with a fresh perspective.

I'm willing to reserve my judgment on the staff changes until we have a new POHO. we'll know pretty quickly if they're hiring someone who will actually do the job right, and keep the owner's worst impulses in check, or if it will be another in a long line of yes men. I'm really Hoping for Ron Francis. He's a smart man, and he won't take **** from anybody.

Ya I don’t think anything changes in Ottawa til they get another owner buffer in place like Murray must have been, Francis could be a good call, he quietly built a nice squad in Carolina, that one could argue in as good of shape as Tb, light a superstar or two. I’m not second guessing smith, more than what I am guessing is a trial run to a better gig for him, and development assignment. Ottawa’s not doing enough to turn the corner
