Mark Cuban is reportedly interested in becoming owner of the Dallas Stars? Stop me if you've heard this one before. That was the first thought out of everyone's mouth nine months ago when Tom Hicks confirmed interest in selling his hockey team, so to "report" it now and suggest he's going to "kick the tires" seems like logical speculation more than actual news.

We've said all along that perhaps "where there's smoke, there's fire" but none of it has proved fruitful where the sale of this team is concerned. Like every other piece of "news", someone in the "mainstream" (usually Canadian) media reports it, and Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News shoots it down, suggesting that there's really been nothing in the way of new developments. Cuban was interested in being minority owner if the deal is beneficial for him, and that's always been the case.
It's rather tiresome. Besides, what do you expect from a segment called "Sources Say"?
Nothing to see here.
