Comparing the Dallas Stars and Phoenix Coyotes

[Editor's Note by Brandon Worley] Thanks to DBD regular Brad_Richards_Rocks for putting up this FanPost. It's a great read on how two comparable hockey franchises in the south have walked completely different paths over the past decade.

Rory Boylen from The Hockey News posted a blog entry comparing two different franchises from down South: Dallas and Phoenix.  The biggest difference between the two is that one is successful while the other isn't.  There are some very good points in there.

One, for instance, is that the Stars kept their core together with players like, Mike Modano, Jere Lehtinen, and Sergei Zubov staying here for so long.  The Coyotes, on the other hand, let go of guys like Jeremy Roenick, Teppo Numminen, and Nikolai Khabbibulin.

It's a very interesting read, especially if you've got hockey withdrawal like I do.  You can read it here.
