Most guys who work in the NHL even in the higher positions weren't very good players though. I don't really see the correlation between the two really. I mean usually the most successful Coaches, GM's, & Scouts in any sport weren't noteworthy players when they played.
Before you get to the selection bias issue, it's just simple math. Great players are rare. That means there are fewer of them. It only makes sense that there would be fewer of them represented in the post-playing career ranks, too.
