I thought the Stars were in Minnesota.
Interesting history. Started out as the Minnesota North Stars in 1967. About 10 years later, the Cleveland Barons folded and were absorbed by Minnesota.
In the early 1990s they wanted to move to San Jose. The league decided to undo the Barons merger and give the North Stars owners the San Jose team (the Sharks). The Sharks took half the roster with them and both teams participated in an expansion draft.
In 1993 the new owners of the North Stars moved the team to Dallas and dropped the now-oxymoronic "North" from the name.
