Wanted: Habs tickets for IOC executive

Overheard near the elevator at the VANOC headquarters on April 1, after the International Olympic Committee coordination commission meeting.

International Olympic Committee director of sport Christophe Dubi asking, with a tinge of desperation, for help in sourcing tickets to Montreal Canadiens' playoff games from none other than VANOC executive vice-president of revenue, marketing and communications Dave Cobb.

Cobb is the former chief operating officer of the Vancouver Canucks and General Motors Place.

Dubi was disappointed to learn that Cobb could offer no help. Dubi then asked about "the black market," but Cobb suggested Dubi explore the team's official website.

Good luck, Christophe. And good luck, les Canadiens.
