STARS HONORING STARS: In Dallas, Mike Heika reported the Stars announced that the organization's 20th Anniversary Team, presented by Dr Pepper, will be "unveiled during the club's remaining home games this season." Fans over the last few months "had an opportunity to vote on DallasStars.com for who they would want to play on their all-time Dallas Stars team." Members of the team will be "honored at home games with special appearances, promotions and interactive content on DallasStars.com" (DALLASNEWS.com, 2/20).
JETS OWNERS EYEING WHL TEAM? In Winnipeg, Gary Lawless reported "word leaked out" last weekend that Jets Owner True North Sports & Entertainment had been having talks with a Western Hockey League owner about "purchasing a franchise but they have now broken off." Jets Senior Dir of Corporate Communications Scott Brown said that the organization would "not be addressing the report." The WHL BOG met in Las Vegas just over a week ago and there was "no report on a sale of a franchise to be relocated to Winnipeg" (WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, 2/18).
