Celine Dion Part of Group Vying to Purchase the Montreal Canadiens

It's not often that I get to write about hockey around these parts (unless it's about dance rock group, Hockey), so even if this story is ostensibly about Celine Dion, I'm still pretty stoked: The Montreal Candiens, currently squared off against their mortal enemies the Boston Bruins in the first round of the NHL playoffs, are up for sale, and a possible group of investors featuring Celine Dion is considering a purchase. Celine Dion is already a hero in French Canada (as South Park posited, the best Canada) and I would imagine buying the Canadiens back from an American (George Gillett) would make her a god.


The Candiens franchise was valued at $335 million by Forbes recently, so that takes more than Titanic money. The group considering joining up to buy the team also includes Segram heir Stephen Bronfman and Quebecor head Karl Peladeu. Gillett is looking to sell the team to get out of the hockey business and turn a profit (he bought the team for $185 million nine years ago), and will only sell for the right price, which can seemingly only be attained by the interested group featuring Dion.

I hope Celine Dion wins the bid... it would be insult fodder for Leaf fans everywhere. Ohhh I can already think of the obnoxious insults I'll have when watching a Leaf game in a Montreal Bar

Hahaha. Yeah, and I guess it's not like I live in a metropolis. I'm not that hard to find.

Although, I have to give respect to the Leafs because their arena is one the three I've ever been to. I was there during the summer once on a family trip for some conference my parents were going to, and I hung out at the Hockey Hall of Fame and the Leafs' arena.
