I guess Gordie Howe experienced much the same in Detroit for the two years he was employed with the Red Wings doing much the same. When the WHA drafted his sons early, opportunity knocked. Perhaps had Maurice Richard been utilized as a Scout, possibly in the capacity of a sort of Assistant Coach on the ice during practices, monitoring & working with the rookies his transition wouldve been easier. But ya, to basically just install him in an office, delivering the fan mail to his desk, well, dont think he'd have found that very fulfilling.
