Sale all but done, Gillett says

George Gillett, tears in his eyes, announced Thursday that the sale
of the Canadiens to the Molson family is all but finalized
, saying his
eight years as owner of the historic team were the best of his family’s
life. He says his one regret was not to have won a Stanley Cup during his tenure with the Canadiens.

“It’s
a happy but sad day for me to be here,” Gillett said, his voice choking
with emotion, at a news conference Thursday morning, prior to a charity
golf tournament at Laval sur le Lac.
