Apparently the possibility of Tavares owning a piece of Phoenix (with Reinsdorf) and Florida isn't an issue. (And in the Molson family buying up the Candiens, with ties to Toronto.)
Maybe the guy knew something, considering that there might be a cross-ownership issue involving the two teams if the sale of the Habs to the Molson family is approved.

"It's no big deal. It's just a (minor) thing," one Leafs executive said. "Cross ownership is allowed in the NHL."

The other three major sports leagues -- the NFL, NBA and Major League Baseball -- prohibit ownership stakes in more than one team, no matter how small that interest.
