Pssssssst. Wanna buy a hockey team? Then get ready to cough up, because the expected upcoming sale of the Dallas Stars is expected to go for an NHL record. Considering the half-interest in the new Dallas arena that's part of the package, a sales price in the $300 million area is likely. And that'll ratchet up the franchise value for the rest of the teams. Which, contrary to common knucklehead assumptions, is actually a good and healthy thing for the NHL.
