1993: Relocation to Dallas
After the 1991 season, the North Stars suffered through poor attendance and profitability. New owner Norm Green explored the possibility of moving the team to Anaheim, however the NHL decided instead to place the expansion Mighty Ducks there in 1992. In their final two seasons in Minnesota, the team adopted a new logo which omitted the "North" from "North Stars," leading many fans to anticipate the team moving.
In 1993, amid further attendance woes and bitter personal controversy, Green obtained permission to move the team to Dallas, Texas. Green was convinced by former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach that Dallas would be a suitable market for an NHL team.
Green, who had run into financial problems stemming from his business ventures outside of hockey, was forced to sell the team to businessman Tom Hicks in December 1995.
