The Morning Skate is officially finally for sale for Thursday, June 11th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of finally getting dumped as Miss California...
  • So we know that two offial bids for the Habs were deposited yesterday, making the team that was never officially for sale really for sale for real now. The two groups we know are the Quebecor Group and Molson brothers Larry, Moe, and Curly. Quebecor's Group includes les Fonds de solidarité FTQ, and René Angelil's management company. Their bid was conditional on Céline singing My Heart Will Go On before every home game;
  • Oh look, La Presse reports it's three groups. And the Journal de Montréal reports it's four groups. They add the Graeme Roustan group and the Bronfman group;
  • It looks like the asking price for the team, the Bell Centre, and the Gillett Entertainment Group was in the $400 to 500 million range. Gillett wanted to throw in Benoit Brunet, but everyone refused.
We'll continue to make Céline Dion jokes and post chicks covered in money as circumstances warrant.

Celine walks into a bar. The bartender says "Hey, why the long face?"


As mentioned yesterday by Gillis or Boob or Goob or somebody, Allaire's been hired by the Leafs. But the TSN article actually sheds a light on the problmes we've had with goalies since he left:

"Allaire, 57, spent 12 years with the Canadiens prior to joining the Ducks as Montreal's goaltending coach."

The difference a comma can make...

Sounds like our goalie coach has been in Anaheim the past 13 years. DOH!

Seriously, the 8 seconds it takes to load the main page because of those videos drives me nuts. It's like I'm hanging on for dear life like some dumb ass rodeo guy. If it ain't porn, it ain't worth it - not even nostalgic Habs moments.

Regarding Allaire...why would you want a butterfly specialist to mess around with your non-butterfly hybrid positional angle specialist goalie? I thought that was pretty much the problem with Rollie...? (Also they showed him on tv working with Hiller and I gotta say I disagree with how he had him hugging his posts but I digress).

Just say NON to Quebecor! Even if it rids us (somehow) of Brunet.
