I look Foward to cheaper tickets and a better rink.

Apparently the teams name, colors and logo will be scrapped.

Daniel Brière is part of the buying group, along with Joël Bouchard, Ian Laperrière and Jean-Sébastien Giguère.

I really think that their colour scheme and jerseys are pretty good.

So what's with this franchise anyway? They move every 3 years...just wait 3 more and they'll be in Summerside

Seriously, hopefully they get the support they deserve in Boisbriand. Junior hockey is a great game, and I'm still disgusted with the indifference this franchise was met with when it was awarded to St. John's.

On the other hand, as a Cape Breton fan, I hope they fail because of Pascal Vincent.

Kind of weird that the last QMJHL hockey game I saw this year and most likely my last was between Montreal and Lewiston in game six of the second round. Now both teams will be non-existent.

That ownership group is definitely an intriguing one for Montreal though. Fun to see NHL players, especially current ones, that get involved with junior hockey. Similar to the ownership group in Kamloops with Recchi, Iginla, Sydor, etc...

I think it's a good strategy for the CHL to have former NHL players as owners. Just in the Q, former players will own a part, or the totality of 4 franchise once Sherbrooke joins the league

I would say NHL players own at least a part of a lot more then 3 Q teams right now.

Chicoutimi, Quebec and Halifax have majority owners as former players as does Boisbriand now.

I knew about Chicoutimi and Québec, I did not know about Halifax. So by 2012-2013 That will be 5 former nhl players owned teams if you add Sherbrooke.

Another team owned by a former NHL player is the PEI Rocket (Serge Savard Sr)

Sr doesn't seem to be involved very much, if at all, in the running of the team but I think it is a family ownership. Here is a link to a recent article in the local paper where it sounds like he still is an owner.

And another link to another on-line article
