The Larry Robinson jersey retirement night has come and gone and as Bob Gainey’s approaches in February, one must wonder who’s the next former Montreal Canadien to get their jersey number retired and hang the Bell Center rafters.
Don’t forget that next year will be the 2009-2010 season for the Habs which marks their 100th year in hockey, their centennial celebration! Since this is going to be a big season for the Habs, who should be honoured to get their number retired on the centennial celebration year?
I’ve heard from various sources that Toe Blake might be one of them. Another person that I’ve heard floating around is…Patrick Roy. Now don’t forget he didn’t exactly leave the Canadiens on good terms! But he was a phenomenal goalie, won 2 stanley cups with us and was voted the best goalie in NHL history in 2004.
So the burning question that some Habs fans are wondering. Who’s Next?
Which great Canadien will have his number retired with some of the greatest players in hockey like Jean beliveau, Maurice Richard, Guy Lafleur etc…
