Reports: Sale of Dallas Stars is Close

Theirs several reports coming out that a sale of the Dallas Stars has been rapidly moving forward over the last couple of days and many of them have the team selling somewhere in the neighborhood of $275-$300 Million Dollars which is more then the $250 Million that many thought that the team would sell four.

No word on which person is behind it, just a reminder, the main players right now looking to own the Stars are Tom Gaglardi of the Kamloops Blazers & Bill Gallacher of the Portland Winterhawks (Both WHL). Both of these owners have done a great job of turning around struggling Junior Clubs back to the glory, and in the case of the Portland Winterhawks, kept them from possbily being moved to a place like Victoria, BC or Boise, Idaho.

The only possible wildcard could be Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban who just after missing out on owning the Texas Rangers, could very well be looking to get involved in the Dallas Stars Situation to turn around the team like he did after he bought the Dallas Mavericks in 2000.

So regardless of who's doing it right now, it would be a win-win for the Dallas Stars as they look to move forward and to put an official end to the Tom Hicks era.

Here's the Report from Forbes
