New Canadiens owner: Celine Dion? WTF...

    ... and the Cirque du Soleil guy? Man, I will never complain about the Browns' Lerner or Tribe's Dolan ever ever ever ever again. Makes Georgia Frontiere even seem quaint.

    Instead of portraits of The Rocket, there will be blown up album covers lining the hallways.


    From having "To you from failing hands we throw the torch be yours to hold it high," above the stalls...

    Every night in my rink
    I see you, the Bruins feel you,
    That is how I know you go on

    Far across the distance
    And benches between us
    You have come to show you go on

    Near, far, wherever you are
    I believe that the Habs do go on
    Once more you open the door
    And you're here in my room
    And my Habs will go on and on

    (Guillaume) Latendresse can touch us one time
    And last for a season
    And never let go till were gone (from the playoffs)

    (Georges) Laraque was when I signed you
    One true time he'll punch you (if he's not a healthy scratch)
    In my life Les Glorieux always go on

    Near, far, whoever Pasquale Mangiola you are
    I believe that the Habs do go on
    Once more you open the door
    And you're here in my room
    And my Habs will go on and on

    Kostitsyns are here, there's nothing I fear,
    And I know that my Habs will go on
    We'll stay forever this way
    You are safe in my rink
    And my Habs will go on and on

    I'd take Celine over Quebecor Media any day of the week.

    Those are guys that have done a slash and burn job at Sun newspapers across the country.

    And Cirque du Soleil is a Quebec institution. Nothing wrong with that.

    La Presse and RDS quoted Serge Savard as saying that he is able to make the deal.

    Oy, Canada.
  6. As long as she promises never, jamais, under any circumstances to sing the anthem (s), I'm OK with this.

    Of course you know that will never happen. She'll probably want to sing it every night.

    Oh, she has to sing it every night. Finally, the Bruins won't have the most over-the-top anthem singer in the league!
  9. Big fan of Guy Laliberte. He went from homeless street performer to a billionaire. He's also a regular in the high stakes poker games in Vegas. Big fan of his. The NHL needs owners like Guy Laliberte.

    I knew you'd have my back on that one.

    Quebecor would probably move the team to Flin Flon if they were offered enough money.

    Well, first they would buy five other teams across the country, then tell them all to do more with less - probably slash them all back to two lines and four defencemen, no backup goalie.

    Then they'd tell all the players that they have to learn how to play everyone else's positions, plus coach, plus do the laundry, plus load the equipment on the bus ...

    And just when you think they couldn't do any worse, they'd combine all the teams into one to centralize services.
