Red Wings hire new GM

Following a difficult season, in which the Wings finished just under .500 and 6 points out of the playoffs, team ownership decided to go in a new direction, hiring the experienced, but mostly unsuccesful, Kevin Smith as their new GM. Smith has spent almost 20 years managing across various EHM leagues, including stints with Edmonton, Phoenix, Montreal, Minnesota, Nashville, Los Angeles, Columbus, and possibly others that he's since forgotten. He was even fundamental in a brief attempt to move a team to Lima, Peru, as part of an international league. Unfortunately, like most of his efforts, the Llamas were not able to win the Stanley Cup.

He does have one championship on his resume, from the 2011 RHL season, where his off-season free agent acquistion of Zdeno Chara helped lead the 5th placed western team to triumph in 7 games against Boston in the finals, having shocked the world by upsetting conference leaders St Louis in 6 games in the second round.

Rumour has it that Smith is planning to turf head coach Mike Babock and replace him with Jukka Koivu, the father of Saku and Mikko, because why the hell not, with other formers Habs (possibly including Mats N??slund, Steve Shutt, Eric Weinrich, and Rollie Melanson) as assistants.
