From what I heard yesterday they said that if necessary and that if Molson wanted to then they would sell their shares of the montreal canadiens but not long ago I remember hearing that Molson confirmed they wanted to keep their shares even if gillete sold, i doubt they would sell anywayz, theres no liability and they just receive a check in the bank every now & then

Oh yeah the fat old poutine on the show said that they where ready to finance UP TO 49% if necessary but that if let's say Gillette only wanted to sell 10 or 20 or 30% they would also.

He also said that they would remain silent partners and would have no control over any of the hockey decisions and all they would ask for is to be able to have a say on the finances.

I didn't hear much of it because I was flipping between Beauchemins interview on anti-chambre and 110% but I guess this means that the Montreal Canadiens ownership issue is gone and that Bob Gainey is going to Remain GM.

Just incase I missheard any of this yesterday, did anyone else watch it last night ??
You have a way with words, are you like 12 ?

He was a good owner for the Habs but now he has to sell and sell soon for the good of the team. I don't want somebody that's gonna owe money left and right, who's not going to afford giving players contracts. Gillet owes everybody money in all his businesses and is trying to weasel his way out of it by finding a partner or partners that will be willing to inject money and not own anything themselves and not a lot of people will be willing to do that. For instance, nobody is going to inject big bucks and just looking at the parade; those that are going to pay will want to have a say in the decisions. And the only way to do that is by owning the entire club. If I was the Quebec goverment I would FORCE him to sell and soon.

I think that reading that news might bring a smile to a lot of faces. Yes, the populace that embraces the truly absurd would love this.

You can't do that. It's a private entreprise. If I was the owner, I would tell you to go **** yourself. Probably literally too.

You can't tell a business owner who hasn't done anything wrong whatsoever what to do.

Are you a communist? What right does any government have to order a man with a private holding to dispose of it at it's whim in your strange world?

Not once did we not spend right up to the cap since he's been the owner so why do you make it seem like our payroll is going to drop to $20M because he owes money? All businessmen are having trouble finding liquidity even though they have assets that contain equity. There's no difference between him and 99% of business owners at this time.

Money will loosen up soon because the markets are indicating slight recovery and are steady. This will all be old news by next season. Aside from the financial aspect of this short term issue for Gillett he has been a great owner. Keeps his nose out of operations, puts good people in charge and spends a lot of money on the team. Name one potential owner that is guaranteed 100% to behave the same way.

I see that GG's partner in crime seems to be in the same, as I read that Hicks is selling a stake in the stars and his mlb team. Looks like both need to free up cash with their loans to liverpool coming due.

The best part of this thread is the troglodytes who come in just to flame Gainey when it has zero to do with that.

People will get "infractions" for calling them idiots, but they can post trash hi-jack posts with impunity. Mods really need to step in and give warnings for off-topic, no content hi-jacks cuz this board is detiorating quickly, I think rds.ca and other trash forums are leaking into here.

That's where you are wrong - you assume that this is a forum for reasonable and informed discussions about the sport of hockey. Everyone knows it's just another internet option for frustrated individuals to vent their hate and anger under the cover of anonimity.

Agreed, We're definitely not on Tsn's experts Panel, this is for everyday fans who would like to express their feelings towards their team

I should really start using the emote more often - I keep being surprised.

Just as a clarification - my previous post was intended as sarcasm. Though it pains me to admit it might reflect reality.

This province and it's excessive taxation rate sure seem to be. TAXES are the number one reason why UFAs won't sign here. The rest is all smoke and mirrors. Blame the fans, blame the media but when it comes right down to it, it's the net money the player will receive after taxes and agent fees etc that matters.
