Afternoon Line- Ted Leonsis

“I’ve been around the game now for a long, long time,” Leonsis said, in response to a question about meddling. “And there are certain things that you do learn and you do see. But if you break the hierarchy — you have a general manager, you have a coach, you have assistant coaches, you have a captain, you have players — the moment you break that hierarchy, I think you inject needless chaos into the system.

“And truthfully, it means you should fire your general manager or your coach. If you’re making the decisions and you think what you know is more than your coach and general manager, then they can’t work for you. Because the general manager and the coach need to be the end-all and be-all, and be in that cocoon, if you will, with the players.

-Ted Leonsis, owner of the Washington Capitals.  More from Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post.
