It's no secret Hicks has some financial issues, but I don't believe anyone anywhere has said that will directly affect the Stars. Hull said they wouldn't spend to the cap, but that was pretty much a given anyway.

Actually, if Joe Nieuwendyk asks for money to spend, I bet Hicks gives it to him because like Bob Gainey, every move will be fairly calculated with this guy... and Hicks may want to let him make a splash early. Also, I get the sense with the comments about Hicks looking to sell the Texas Rangers that he might be eager to show he's committed to the Stars.

Besides, what's a couple million considering the numbers people are throwing out about Hicks. Short of bankruptcy, the Stars aren't going to be affected, nor are they going to have a big impact on Hicks' overall bottom line.
