Negotiations are ongoing and there is no word on whether or not Jacobs' Delaware North Companies would retain ownership of the TD Banknorth Garden. Jeremy Jacobs purchased the Bruins in 1975 for $10 million. According to Forbes, the Boston Bruins franchise is currently worth an estimated $263 million.
