    Jacobs: For sale sign not up on Bruins?

    While the Bruins' prospects twirled around the Ristuccia Arena ice last week, rumors once again swirled around the Hub that Jeremy Jacobs, chairman of the Black and Gold, had his hockey club up for sale.

    "He's shopping it to his billionaire buddies," said one non-team source who deals on a regular basis with members of the Bruins' front office.

     At  a plus billion  starting price, the team would probably get sold to another  Jacob like group. Money, not hockey  rules!!

    lets get the bake sale together and buy the team from him, we can run it like Packer nation.

    he spends to the cap, only thing he is guilty of now is bad managment. lets hope chiarelli & co. can get the job done.

    Exactly. A team and assets costing a billion $'s are going to get sold to:

    1. a businessman who knows nothing about the sport but is a wanna be GM, aka Steinbrenner or Cuban, or

    2. a businessman who loks at it as an investment, and is looking for profit principally (i.e. Jacobs), or

    3. a company which is looking for profit principally. Like the Make Me Laughs, who are owned by a Teachers Pension Fund.

    The only 2 clubs with hockey knowledgeable ownership (Phoenix with Gretzky, and Pittsburgh with Lemieux), only got there because of financial hardship. Lemieux only got ownership because the team didn't have the money to pay him what he was owed. That's not going to happen with the Bruins.

    Anyone hanging on thinking the silver bullet is for Jacobs to sell, is likely to be very disappointed when it eventually happens (oh, maybe 30 years from now). You may as well just find another team to cheer for now. Why don't you try the Maple Leafs, maybe ownership by Kindergarten teachers will make you content.
