|Details of the new ownership deal will be released this afternoon.|
Formerly the CEO of UnitedHealth Group, McGuire tells the Strib he's no soccer fanatic, but sees buying the team as a means of "making a better community."
That makes McGuire an unlikely savior for Stars fans, who up until a couple weeks ago, feared the league would shut down the team if no one stepped up.
The Stars will officially introduce McGuire during a press conference at Brit's Pub this afternoon. Check back for more info on the new ownership deal then.
