People are wired that way. No different than a college coach who is successful at a big college leaving that to try his shot in the pros.

Agents deal with the General Managers so I'm sure a good number of Agents would feel after time has passed that they could do that job.

Yes. I can't remember who off the top of my head, but a number of very high profile players. Some who are coming into UFA and contract extension years.

I'd sleep better at night if Don Waddell, Jim Rutherford and Jay Feaster also removed their names from consideration.

I wonder if there are any other names out there that aren't recycled older GMs or current assistant GMs.

I consider guys like Pierre and Brisson to be "wildcards". I wonder if there are any other wildcards out there that make sense.

You were trying to think of Jay Caufield, I believe.

The "Live to Work" contingent can explain this, but it sounds like a fruitless effort...

I know a few people who have been very successful (if we define success according to prestige), made enough money to buy a small island, and then gone on to do other things just for the challenge. It does happen. For some, you make all your cash, then you can go chase a dream.

He's not going from sports agent to [whatever job fits the bill for your criteria]. It's one of 30 available on the planet. Anyone in hockey with half a brain would be intrigued at the very least.

He was intrigued. For about 2 days.

Seems like a reasonable time period to seriously consider it. It's not like the Pens can wait weeks to let him ponder it, not to mention he cant leave his clients in limbo as they wonder if they will need a new agent. Given how close he is with Mario, I'm guessing he told them first before putting out the release. They need to move on and he has a business to run if he's not taking it. I wouldn't take the 2-3 days since shero was canned to the announcement to mean he didn't seriously consider it in light of the circumstances.

Right. Look at all the people who leave lush partnerships at big law firms to take low-paying thankless high profile gov't jobs. If he gets fired, he can go back to being a super agent. It wouldn't surprise me to see someone do such a thing.

Those government jobs aren't low paying and come with great lifetime pensions.

Deputy and assistant cabinet secretaries are paid under $200,000, and there is no pension for the brief time these individuals take the jobs. Compared to their seven-figure salaries elsewhere, they are extremely low paying.
