Friday notes: Chuck Greenberg in as potential Stars buyer
By Mark Stepneski
*It looks like Chuck Greenberg, who led the group that bought the Texas Rangers last year, is in the mix as a potential buyer for the Dallas Stars. ESPNDallas.com’s Richard Durrett has the details here.
* The search continues for a new head coach for the Texas Stars. No word on when that might get done, but one name making the rounds as a possible replacement for Glen Gulutzan is Trent Yawney. He’s spent the last three seasons as an assistant coach with the San Jose Sharks. Was head coach of the Chicago Blackhawks for a little more than one season and spent five years as head coach of Norfolk in the AHL.
*The Dallas Stars have voided the contract of prospect Sergei Korostin, a third round pick in 2007. Korostin has apparently signed a deal to play in the KHL. Korostin last played in the Stars’ system in 2009-10, when he suited up for the Texas Stars. Losing him isn’t that big a deal, but the freeing up a contract is. Teams are allowed to have only 50 players signed to contracts in a season.
