from the Edmonton Journal,
The axe fell in Phoenix not long after Barry Smith high-tailed it off the continent….
So why not hang around and help if things look so rosy?
“I wanted to run my own program. I’d gone with Scotty Bowman (in Detroit) for a long time and it was a tremendous experience,” said Smith. “I had the chance to work with Wayne for two seasons and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. He’s got to be the coach. He’s got to have the chance of doing more on his own.
“I want to do more of my own as well. It wasn’t as if we had different philosophies. I love the guy. I needed a chance to try my way.”
