Leiweke rumor denied by Seahawks

Fresh off last night's whirlwind of rumors regarding the Lightning executive search comes a denial of TSN's report that Tod Leiweke, CEO of Vulcan Sports and the Seattle Seahawks/Sounders FC, is Candidate One for the role of Lightning CEO.  

Damian Cristodero from the Times got an on-the-record comment form Seahawk's spokesman Dave Pearson last night, who declared there was no truth to the TSN report.  

Of course, from a fan perspective, the focus is on the news that the Bolts have requested permission from the Red Wings (and received it) to talk to Steve Yzerman about the GM job...  But the fact remains a GM isn't going to be hired before a CEO is in place (or so Jeff Vinik had declared previously).

So the CEO search may very well be at a conclusion, and someone is on the verge of finalizing a deal.  If that is the case -- will the mystery guest please sign in?
