Stars in dire trouble?

With the Dr. Pepper/Star Center in Duncanville very close to death, and Hick having to take money from the MLB to keep the Rangers afloat, what does everyone think the Stars' outlook is like?

God I hope so, but Hicks has made some shitty financial decisions.

Since they are hurting so bad, they can't afford to keep the Duncanville rink afloat.

Stars staff admitted that ticket sales through the rink would help.

While the Starcenters are owned by the Stars the closing of it is not a reflection of the team. The fact that they had to close it has more to do with demographics and the upkeep of keeping a rink open when it isn't used for much more than some youth programs and adult league.

I didn't know Hick was having that many financial issues. I used to work on all his Mercedes and wondered why he declined to replace bald tires on his $120,000.00 car last year. It all makes sense now lol
