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.
