from Dave Stubbs of NHL.com,

How has ownership of the Canadiens impacted you personally, and what drives you every day?

"I put my heart and soul into this every single day of my life. I want to be successful. Not only for myself, but for the fans. I know how amazing it's going to be when we reach the 25th Stanley Cup. I lived it many times in my youth but it's been a long time. A very long time.

"It is hard for me to have not accomplished it yet, but at the same time, over the course of these 10 years I've learned that no longer can you buy a Stanley Cup. You need to build. You need patience, to be able to accept that it's going to be tough and that what you do might or might not lead to greatness. That uncertainty is hard because you want to deliver No. 25 to your fans. There are no guarantees at all. Look what happened this year -- the best team in the League (Tampa Bay Lightning) was swept in the first round (by the Blue Jackets). Imagine if that happened in Montreal?

"The sentiment I hear and feel now from fans, and obviously I see them all the time and I'm not shy to talk to anybody, is very positive. They're really pleased with the changes that have been made and excited about this coming season and the future. It's a good place to be."

many more questions and answers...
