Wayne Gretzky, Brett Hull Trying to Buy the Dallas Stars

According to the Dallas Observer and TSN, Brett Hull is trying to bring Wayne Gretzky and Mike Modano on board to buy the Dalls Stars. “It’s nothing formal, as if they’re about to sign on the dotted line,” says one source. “But it’s gone past kicking the tires. This could happen.” Sources told TSN, though Hull has talked to Gretzky, they’ve haven’t talked about it in at least 6 weeks.

Brett Hull is currently the Stars Executive Vice President. Mike Modano might retire at the end of the season. Modano told the Stars PR that he “doesn’t know anything about this”.

Current Dallas Stars owner is looking to sell the Dallas Stars and arena, and is selling the Texas Rangers. He owes banks and leagues somewhere in the $670 million range. His deal for selling the Rangers should be finalized April 19th.
