STARS OWNER STILL TALKING TO POTENTIAL LOCAL INVESTORS

     Stars Owner Norm Green said yesterday he is still talking to
potential buyers for the team, even though he has an offer of
more than $82M, according to the DALLAS MORNING NEWS.  After five
months of negotiations, a group headed by Dallas businessman John
Spano submitted a proposal to Green Tuesday that included an
$82.3M offer to buy the team.  Green, however, said he is still
talking with other potential buyers, including Dallas financier
Thomas Hicks.  Mavs Owners Donald Carter has promised to bail the
team out -- but only as a last resort, and only at his price.
Green denies reports NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman is pressuring
him to sell the team, but said a deal could come next week.
Green also described his main creditor, Alberta Treasury
Branches, as "cooperative, not adversarial," and he said the sale
of the team will clear his problems with the bank and other
creditors (Richard Alm, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 12/1).
