NHL Execs Say Reward Outweighs Risk For Hosting Outdoor Game In California

WISHING UPON A STAR? In Ft. Worth, Mac Engel reported it would not be surprising if in "about one year the Dallas Stars announce they will play a home game at Cowboys Stadium." Stars President & CEO Jim Lites yesterday said that it is a "concept that he has kicked around and believes can happen." Lites: "We could do it at the Cotton Bowl, but Cowboys Stadium makes more sense because of the cache of the building. You would do it in January or February, and open the roof. You can turn down the temperature of the ice to zero degrees. ... It's seldom humid at that time of year but it does rain." He added that the amount of planning "would be akin to hosting an NHL All-Star game, and would require several months of detailed work" (STAR-TELEGRAM.com, 5/7).
