Because he's a great owner and if he sells his share of liverpool, he won't be in a financial crisis anymore.

And because him being the owner is FAR better and cheaper for us fans than if...let's say, Celine and Quebecor put their dirty hands on the team. Unless of course you're under the delusion that pure-laine Québécois are not interested in buying the Habs, aka the biggest cash cow in the province, to make money.

His partner hicks (?) pretty much screwed Gillett blocking the sale of liverpool a while back before the economic meltdown.

i think Gillett has been a good owner caught in bad circumstances

On the other hand, a Liverpool sale now would do much more to bail him out than dropping Montreal
