To the first part - there's no gurantee Linden would be as bad as Smyl was as a coach. Some guys are suited for it, some aren't. I don't think Linden would do terribly, but I also wouldn't start him off with a role as important as a head coach.

That said, Linden seems very content with his situation in retirement. I get the feeling he's kind of expanding his mind beyond hockey, as that was all he had been consumed with for the first 39 years of his life. So good for him.
