The Victoria Cougars select a man whose two-way play helped one of the greatest dynasties in sports history. He had lots of skill, but when playing on the powerhouse Canadiens he adapted his game to make sure he could find an important role on the great team. Welcome to Victoria RW Floyd Curry

From LEGENDS OF HOCKEY

Quote:
Curry, known as a defensive specialist, played on some powerhouse Canadiens' teams, which included the likes of Maurice Richard, Doug Harvey, Bernie Geoffrion, Jean Beliveau, and Jacques Plante in goal. "When I first came out of junior hockey, I was known as a scorer," Curry noted. "But when I arrived in Montreal I knew right away I could not compete with the likes of some of the stars they had there, so I made a conscious effort to change my game to a defensive style." It was that intelligent decision which kept him on the Canadiens' roster for ten years, and earned him four Stanley Cup rings.
