WISHING UPON A STAR: The GLOBE & MAIL's Mirtle & Ebner wrote new Stars Owner Tom Gaglardi "has already helped to bring some good vibrations to a market that for years was considered the NHL’s shining success story in the U.S. sunbelt." Step 1 "was to rehire Jim Lites as team president." Step 2 "was reassuring players and fans that Gaglardi would spend enough to win, putting success on the ice and at the gate above the type of bean counting that has hurt the franchise the past few years under troubled former owner Tom Hicks." Gaglardi said, "This isn't a franchise that's never been up. It's been up for most of its existence, and it lost its way in the last three years. ... This market is too good for me not to get involved" (GLOBE & MAIL, 11/26).
