Time to start hiring people that love, breathe and know the game, and why its the best.

Perhaps Linden isn't the best candidate, because I agree with you, he should have some background in business. Linden however, should be brought into this management team in a small roll where he can gain a good education on team operations.
That said, Linden could be black balled from management in the NHL...
Perhaps, then, it would be best to hire Linden as VP of Marketing/Public Relations (or something to that effect).
I don't see him as President and CEO just yet.
