‘‘I think Peter’s (Chiarelli) career path is higher than where he is now,’’ Jacobs said. ‘‘I think he can continue on, and I think he’ll continue to be a mainstay in this sport going forward. My information is that his capabilities are much broader than what he’s doing right now.’’ Whether Jacobs is right about that or not, his opinion leaves him in the position of already thinking of the day he’ll need to replace Chiarelli, who has only had an office at the Garden for about two months. ‘‘We have to find the next star,’’ Jacobs said. ‘‘That’s the success of this sport, and probably all sports. You have to have a backup position, and you have to have people who are growing. Once you lose that - once you stay too long in one spot - you become stagnant.’’ (This may be a good place to insert a reminder: Jacobs said he’s not interested in selling the hockey team he has owned for 32 years.)more
