- 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.
