In what would be the biggest transaction in Canadian sport history, Rogers is in talks to buy the Toronto Maple Leafs in a deal worth more than $1 billion, sources said Tuesday. The sale would include the Raptors, Toronto FC soccer club and the Marlies, the Maple Leafs’ minor league hockey team. Buying a majority stake in Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment from the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan would transform Rogers, which already owns the Toronto Blue Jays, into one of the most powerful sports enterprises in North America.

Our favourite investigative reporter, Robert Cribb, drops a bombshell that Bloge Salming (sorry pal!) mentioned earlier in the day. It's a long way from happening, especially since Larry Tanenbaum has the right of first refusal, but it's incredible to think that the OTPP might sell.
