From Wall Street To Phoenix

from Craig Custance of the Sporting News,

When you make a living working on Wall Street, these stories can be useful.

So he watched as guests explained the dramatic changes they had made in their lives to find dream jobs. And it got Sulliman thinking.

Sulliman still had plenty of connections and planned phone calls to current general managers such as Lou Lamoriello and Paul Holmgren.

Maloney told him to wait. He didn’t say why—just wait.

“(Maloney’s) a chess player; he’s always thinking ahead,” Sulliman says.

Update 3:18pm ET (alanah): Just a quick FYI about this article—bear in mind that it was originally published back in May. MSNBC picked it up without noting the original publication date.
