On a more serious note…Is Gillet really selling the Habs?

….Although I do wish that you would go check out my conspiracy theory. It took me a while to write it, even if it’s over the top. Anyway… on a more serious note…

At what point did Gillet actually say that he was going to sell the Habs? From what I’ve gathered, he merely asked that his assets get looked over. Sure, he’s probably looking to sell off some of the stuff – and when you’re a multi gazillionaire there’s a lot of stuff – but at what point did he say that it was going to be the Montreal Canadiens and not the big mess that is the Liverpool football team in England? Personally, if I was Gillet, I’d try to get out of co-owning Liverpool as soon as possible. But that’s just me (and yes, I do love Liverpool).

I’m not saying that he isn’t going to sell the Canadiens in full or in part. But after I just made a spiel about how financially stable this franchise appears to be, I would be very surprised if Gillet completely sells off his share of the team and the Bell Center. Especially now when he’s most likely going to have to sell it for a lot less than it’s projected worth in October (because the economy tanked. Not the team). Unless there’s something else going on that we don’t know about behind the scenes.

Either way, I think it’s a little premature for the media to start screaming that the team is about to be sold. The last thing we really need to have going around is rumors that the team is for sale. But that’s the media for you, people…..For now, I’m just going to sit back, plot my way into bribing Bettman into giving me the team, and wonder if it’s possible to brainwash Kovalchuk into playing for the Habs tonight…

    OMG Ric Peterson actually thought of suggesting the public buy the Habs. ‘Cause you know Leaf fans are sooooooooo happy with the Teachers Pension guys… BAD IDEA! Thankfully the government said “no way we even go there” because the minute you throw Quebec politics directly in to our great franchise, it will crumble like our crumbling infrastructures…

  2. Personally, I think politics have already mixed into the franchise in an indirect way and that’s bad enough… No way, people….Now I really hope Gillet comes out and says that he’s going to dump Liverpool and not the Habs… oy….
