So, I wouldn't be surprised to hear of Anaheim farming prospects out to different teams.

They can send their AHL team down here to Albuquerque if they want!
Dallas Stars' owner, Tom Hicks, was on the verge of purchasing the Iowa Stars franchise, but did not in the end. Things are very touchy between the AHL's brass and Tom Hicks/The Texas Stars. We talked about this a little over at the Stars boards.
