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.
