Modano Open, Cuban Mum on Stars Deal

A couple of guys who could play a role in the future of the Dallas Stars were out at Frisco’s Dr PepperMike Modano IMG_3668 Ballpark for a charity event this weekend. But only one of them was talking about the hockey team. Mark Cuban, who’s reportedly been OK’d as a potential bidder for the club, said, “No comment” when asked about those reports. He said the same thing when asked about Chuck Greenberg’s interest in buying the Stars.

What about both Cuban and Greenberg going for the team, together? Maybe it’s not so crazy. In the May/June D CEO, we reported that at one point during the Texas Rangers bidding war, Cuban suggested that Greenberg should dump the ownership group he’d put together and join forces with Mark.

Unlike the Mavs owner, former Stars standout Mike Modano (photo here by Jeanne Prejean) didn’t flinch when Ben & Skin asked him at Dr Pepper whether he’d be interested in returning to Dallas (he’s currently with the Detroit Red Wings) and acquiring his old team. “If someone’s got the money,” Modano replied, “I can make decisions for ’em.”
