"Knowledgeable on hockey related matters"... means what? For a coach, it's one thing. For a GM, quite another. I'd bet anything that there are posters here who, if they got paid megabucks to make being an NHL GM their career, would pick up any gaps in "knowledge" in an awful hurry. And then use their superior smartness and education to do a better job managing the team. And I think there are already a few who will have better awareness of statistics and player identities than some NHL GMs do. Even while doing it gratis as a hobby. I don't think you need to put some of these hockey execs on a pedestal. As Habs fans we ought to know that better than most, given what we've seen in recent years.
