How many owners does it take to…

Adam Proteau of the Hockey News considers the question of whether single- or multiple-owner organizations are better suited for NHL success:

In Edmonton, it’s difficult to be cheery, what with the Oilers having won just three home games this season.

But there’s one thing — make that one person — Oil fans should be especially thankful for: their owner, Daryl Katz.

Katz hasn’t turned the NHL upside down since he bought the franchise last July.

However, the fact Edmonton has a single soul directing the team has to be considered a distinct competitive advantage.

There’s some interesting evidence in there that a lone voice at the top is perhaps the best path to the Stanley Cup.
