Thread: Canadiens for Sale?

    Exclamation Canadiens for Sale?

    Austrian billionaire may be interested in buying the Habs.

    Dietrich "Didi" Mateschitz is the owner of the Red Bull energy drink, and already owns two soccer teams and a stadium. Looks like he wants to add an NHL team to his collection.

    Why is this a surprise?

    Isn't that what this whole message board is about?

    I mean ... 'Canadiens' for sale?

    Or should I say 'Quebecoise' for sale ?

    "For sale: One very used hockey team. Was exceptionally good for many years until a couple of decades ago. Since then has been mediocre or worse but occasionally redeemed by quality goaltending. Lacks direction and offensive power but a proven moneymaker thanks to many gullible dreamers who worship the team and never stop believing that NEXT year will be their year. Take advantage of these suckers and make millions. Price negotiable. Contact G. Gillett Jr."

    blah, blah, blah... a big yawn, even if it was Groundhog Day.

    I know what you mean Pablo: You're like Bill Murray, waking up every day and thinking...praying...hoping...dreaming that Le Tricolor will improve and finally be contenders once more - sadly, only to end the day with them mired in their usual abyss. Fortunately though, Pablo you wake up the next morning and the beautiful, wonderful dream begins anew. Ain't life grand when you can avoid the real world?

    NBC Sports: Montreal to be bleu, blanc et Red Bull ???

    Even NBC Sports ran the story on George Gillett having "top secret" talks with Dietrich Mateschitz about a potential sale of the Canadiens ... but now there are denials from Habs management.

    In today's Journal de Montreal, Red Bull also dismissed the rumors stating that the Canadiens would be out of their price range.
    And the Lord said unto John, "Come forth and receive eternal life." But John came fifth and won a toaster.

    All of these public denials only suggest that the two sides are far apart on the price for the franchise. Nothing unusual here when it comes to deal making...
