Molson Brothers Buy Montreal Canadiens: Reports -- The Montreal Gazette
MONTREAL - Montreal Canadiens owner George N. Gillett Jr. has reached an agreement in principle to sell the Habs and the Bell Centre to the Molson family, media reports say.

Brothers Geoff, Andrew and Justin Molson announced earlier this month they had placed an offer for the club. Gillett bought an 80.1-per-cent stake in the team on Jan. 31, 2001, the brewery keeping 19.9 per cent.
