Quebecor as the new owners

What would be your reaction if Quebecor became the owners? Would it be a good thing? I personally do not want Quebecor as the owner. PKP`s reaction after Martin was hired left me a bad taste. Why wait 2 weeks?

I would boycott the team, plain and simple. Forget the Habs. I would follow the Hawks as my primary team and the Sharks as my secondary. I wouldn't spend a dime on the Quebecor Habs, and I would only come back with a new owner in place. In the meantime, I would get all my friends/family to join me as well. Hopefully, somebody would organize a real good boycott and force Quebecor to sell.

Vomit for a few days, then, in my weakened state, force myself to become a Penguin fan. Any other suggestions out there?

I have different issues with all prospective owners. If Québecor doesn't meddle in hockey operations and doesn't hire an intellectual lightweight as GM, I'm fine with them. However, Péladeau's early comments reminded me of the MLSE nightmare in Toronto...

open the flood gates to a massive media convergence and conspiracy attack.
you guys probably think 9/11 was all planned by the US.

my point: any new/present owner will use/uses the team as a marketing tool, quebecor, molson or bce. and second, I would actually like a habs tv channel, probably in the works if quebecor wins that thing.

Honestly, it wouldn't change a thing... or maybe they will just make it clearer to anyone that this is a business and nothing more. The job of group Gillett as been to sell tickets, and they manage to do it over the years. Winning is not really that important when the arena is filled every night with 10$ bears and 5$ hot-dogs.

Quebecor want this club mainly for its TV group, and for the show production industry. I don't think PKP has time to look at how the club is doing as long as the tickets are sold.

Then, you will get the same complesant Kovalev interviews, but instead to have them in "la semaine", they will be in le Journal de Montreal or in 7 jours. Nothing really different. The only thing is a different owner. He is french speaking, but not known particularly to be nationalist like is father was. So don't be afraid of the french speaking guy.

I would watch and see I guess. Not much else we CAN do. If the team does well under them, despite their bad reputation, then I'm fine with that. If they hurt the team, then yeah, I would probably be pissed; but again, nothing I could do about it.

Is the image projected on RDS of the club and it's players what Habs marketing is really looking for?

I would be very dissapointed.

This Peladeau mofo is only doin this for the $$$$ , not for the passion and the legacy of the team.

That dude will created a TVA Sport channel that will cost 10$ each month for us to watch the habs. Trust me, this will become a joke.

I am totally against him.

I would probably throw up.
This enterprise just wants to own and monopolise everything; like others mentionned, I wouldnt be surprised to see the habs move on some kind of private TVA-Sports channel or something and be covered on gossip magazines.

No thanks, just sell the team to the molson family.
