Speaking of the Stars, the "For Sale" sign is still on the lawn.
And it seems that there are a few different price points floating around.
For starters, Dallas was ranked seventh-most valuable among the NHL franchises this year by Forbes at $246-million. Since rumors of the sale have started, some have speculated the Stars could go for much closer to $300-million or farther down the scale at $225-million (Although many have denied that the team would sell for something that low).
Current owner Tom Hicks has said that, if the new owner wants to spend to the cap, it's going to come out of his own pocket. The team can't just go throwing coin around at free agents because they're losing money.
That means there's some work to do in Dallas.
What is known is that Bill Gallacher has a very good chance of landing the Dallas Stars. Probably the best.
Mark Cuban has said that he isn't interested in the team, so it may come down to Bill Gallacher and Tom Gaglardi.
In other, kind of related news: Kevin Bieksa, who the Stars reportedly have interest in, probably won't be moving to Dallas anytime soon. They want to get this situation sorted out first.
