I think it is stupid that some people think he would move the team!

For one they have the largest attendance in the league, two they are how many times sold out in a row now? Three, their value has double since Gillet bought them and last but not least the Montreal franchise is the oldest most decorated team in the NHL and is the flagship team of the NHL along with the Leafs!!!

This is not the struggling Nashville Predators or the Atlanta Thrashers people, wake up.

And to think Gillet wouldn't sell them is silly on most peoples part as well, like any other businessman he is losing his shirt because of the market (not to mention the canadian dollar value now as well) and his best and biggest asset to sell right now is the Habs and if there is a buyer like Blackberry's owner Basille and willing to pay for the team and arena Gillet is going to listen.

Jim would be a great owner, he has deep pockets and an ego...everything a great owner needs to succeed!

Will the habs be sold? Probably Not, but if they were you couldn't find a better owner than Blackberry.
