from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,
“My goal,’’ he said, “is to turn the Tampa Bay Lightning into a world-class organization,’’ said Vinik, who ran Fidelity’s Magellan Fund prior to opening his own hedge fund, Vinik Asset Management, which continues to be his day job. “To do that, I’ll hire a super CEO, and then it will be his job to hire a super GM, and it will be the GM’s job to hire a super coach.
“I want excellence throughout the organization, people who are great people with great vision and integrity.’’
If they come at a high cost, so be it, said Vinik, whose aim is to have the top three jobs filled by the time of the draft at the end of June. His career in finance has taught him that the best people often come with high price tags, but he’s OK with shelling out, “because in the end, you find those people pay dividends.’’
