Yesterday, after the surprising news broke that Peter Luukko had resigned as president of Comcast-Spectator (the parent company of the Philadelphia Flyers), we thought there might be to the story than just a 54-year-old executive going to “pursue other entrepreneurial interests.”

Turns out we were totally right. Luukko, indeed, has big plans.

“I’m going to clean out my garage,” he told CSN Philly.

And after he’s done with that?

From CSN Philly:

Luukko said, contrary to rumors, he has “nothing” in line for the future.

“That’s the good thing because I need to really clear my head and think about that next decision on what is the next, good thing to do,” he said. “I love operating and rolling up my sleeves and getting my hands dirty. I’m looking forward to a single focus at some point.”

Asked about speculation he might get into broadcast management in hockey or expansion teams, or some other off-shoot of the sport, he replied, “It could be all the above but right now, I’ve got nothing.”

Here’s Flyers owner Ed Snider talking about Luukko’s resignation and wishing his former right-hand man well:

    I realize the guy has done pretty much everything for hockey in Philly, but Ed Snider has to be one of the most unlikeable people in sports. Along with Jeremy Jacobs and Jerry Jones.
