Dallas's two-headed monster

At first blush, it seems like a terrible idea — and not as unprecedented as the Stars seem to think. There was once a three-headed monster running the San Jose Sharks in the early days — Dean Lombardi, Chuck Grillo and Jack Ferreira each had one defined area of responsibility and reported to the president. It was an unmitigated disaster on many levels — and the Sharks eventually returned to a more traditional front-office hierarchy, with the GM in charge of hockey operations, at which point they turned the corner in a hurry.

Hicks said he expected Hull and Jackson to be able to achieve a consensus on most issues and according to the Dallas Morning News, if they couldn't, he would break the ties.
The Stars, long a boring, model franchise, are about to get a whole lot more interesting.

When I first heard about this earlier today, the Sharks' three-headed monster is immediately what came to mind. That idiocy set the Sharks back a few years, at least.

3 is an unstable group dynamic in pretty much any situation. I wouldn't necessarily compare that to Hull/Jackson.
