Can It Get Any Worse?

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,

Can we agree the only news your Canadiens are getting these days is linked inexorably with bad news?

I mean, it’s bad enough they’re riding a five-game losing streak and in grave danger of missing the playoffs awaiting Tuesday’s game with the Atlanta Thrashers. Who would have imagined that scenario with only 10 games remaining in their schedule?

It doesn’t get worse than that – until Mondays startling report in La Presse that majority owner George N. Gillett Jr. has retained a number of financial advisors to determine the value of his sports and business holdings, which could be the first step in selling, refinancing or taking on partners in his properties.

The move could not have come at a worse time for this desperately struggling team. It’s nothing less than a dagger in the heart of the organization, the players and their fans.
