BREAKING: Stars Sale Imminent

According to news from Dallas Stars employees (read: workers from the warehouse in the team store in Frisco), the sale of the Dallas Stars to an as of yet unknown party is going to happen "very very soon".

"We had a meeting that we're getting paid tomorrow because the club is declaring bankruptcy and freezing accounts tomorrow," says the source. "This is so the new owners won't take on our debt and shit. Basically we're being sold very very soon, things are going to court to finalize stuff."

UPDATE 1: Our anonymous source, who will henceforth be called "Rimjob" a la Woodward and Bernstein, has told us that his boss' superior held the meeting earlier today with 7 other employees from the merchandise department.

UPDATE 2: For those who are calling BS, and there are a few of you, consider it like this: If they freeze the accounts and declare bankruptcy tomorrow and the sale doesn't come within the month, it means that every person that works in the Starcenters, from the shop workers to the zamboni drivers, are not going to get paid what they are owed on the 30th.

I'm not an expert on bankruptcy law, but I'm pretty sure that not paying the people who work for you is illegal.

More details to come as they emerge

  1. They're telling us to pick up our paychecks (issued a week early) ASAP. Also heard that some high-ups on the front office have already jumped ship. Not looking good for employees.
