Habs sign Chipcura to three-year deal

Selected 18th overall by the Canadiens in 2004, Chipchura just completed his fourth season with the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League.

Aebischer to sign with the Habs ?

According to the RDS Broadcasting and LCN ( Quebec news channel ), David Aebischer is going to receive a 1 year / 2 millions offer from Bob Gainey.

Habs took some number off.

The Montreal Canadiens annonce that 3 number this years will join the roof of the Bell Center.

Jacques Plante (1), Doug Harvey (2), Jean BĂ©liveau (4), Howie Morenz (7), Maurice Richard (9), Guy Lafleur (10) and Henri Richard (16) have already be honored.

Speculation around Montreal said that Patrick Roy (33), Larry Robinson (19) are two of the highest possibility of this year.

Personnally, I think that Robinson, Geoffrion (5) and Ken Dryden (?) are the best possibility. The Habs also announce that 3 others players will be honored, one per year onto 2009.

Who do you think will have his number on the top of the hockey’s church ?

Waiting your answer.
