It looks like it’s a sad day for Rene Angelil and Quebecor as news has broken that members of the Molson family will once again take control of the Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club.
“Mr. Molson said he is conscious that the Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club is a heritage asset for the Montreal community and that with his brothers Andrew and Justin he would endeavour to maintain the tradition of the prestigious club while working with management to build a strong team on the ice and aim to bring back the Stanley Cup to Montreal.
“This is a very exciting time for our family and we are grateful to the many people and
organizations who came forward to offer their collaboration in the development of our proposal,” said Mr. Molson.”
I wonder what impact this will have on the direction of the team? Is the Vinny deal done? Will the Bob Gainey/Jacques Martin combo remain?
And now with less than two weeks before the Canadians potentially lose a bunch of UFA’s who will or won’t be signed?
Should be an interesting draft week in Montreal.
More to come….
