I talked to two NHL sources and they say that The Hockey News report that Bill Gallcher has agreed to buy the Stars for $225 million is not accurate.
They say the sale process is ongoing and that Gallacher is a candidate to buy the team, but that they have not gotten as far in the process of agreeing to a price with any buyer. One said the reported price was too low.
I'll keep making calls, but this sounds like a false alarm.
By the way, I have called Gallacher's office several times and his people have told me that he is not commenting on the situation.
