Dyrden And Savard To Be Honoured

In a not so secret announcement that was supposed to have taken place on wednesday but was postponed due to the unfortunate cir¢umstances that happened at Montreal’s Dawson College, the Montreal Canadiens were to announce that the numbers of Serge Savard (18) and Ken Dryden (29) are going to be retired this upcoming season.

Besides these two, and Robinson, Gainey, and Roy, who do you think will round out the eight that have been said will have their numbers retired by 2010?

    Can you imagine if Dryden would have played 18 seasons like Roy did. Patrick would still be playing trying to catch up to Dryden in wins.

    With everyone in Montreals prestigous (and cheatin) history, what are they going to do in 10 years when the 23 man roster won’t have enough jerseys 1-98?

    Like refusing an entry draft for the longest time so you could have the best and only the best from 1930-1965

    The Habs should have 50 championships to date. Its a shame they have… 24 is it? They are to hockey what the NY Yankees are to baseball… in both senses. The Yankees should with the World Series every year with that difference in payroll.

    You mean the best from Québec, not from everywhere else.

    Unless you’re stating the best are from Québec anyway…

    Should have helped Toronto even more.

    From the old guys, I read that #4 was retired honoring both Jean Beliveau and Aurial Joliet. Henri Richard and Elmer Lach were both honored for #16. Though only Richard is mentioned on the banner today.

    Players that could be considered include Lapointe, Lemaire and Durnan (6 vezinas, 6 first team all-star, last goalie to be captain in the NHL.

    You are clearly retarded. They’re going to retire another 6-8 players at most. Most new players today are picking higher numbers than the previous generations, so I really don’t see any problem. You’re just talking through your ass, you don’t have the slightest clue what you’re saying.

    sarcasm, and exaggeration

    First of all, why could the Canadiens

    have the best and only the best from 1930-1965?

    Also, how is it cheating if all the teams are playing under the same rules. I would also like a reference to the refusing an entry draft comment.

    Please clarify your statements.

    They only had exclusive access to the best from Quebec for 2 years in the 1930’s.
