While the number of Cups doesn't entirely define a player, have you ever seen the Pocket Rocket ? I don't know how old you are,or whether you have access to old film but this guy was a great player. Phil Bourque didn't score the game tying and winning goals in a game 7 comeback to win his cup did he ? Or score the overtime winner in game 6  to win another . He did manage to contribute a bit.
I remember game 7, 1971. The old Chicago Stadium. If not the best, certainly one of the best hockey atmospheres, with the organ and the way crowd were into games (I miss that old barn).
Henri had a great game in the lion's den when it meant the most.
Of course hockey is a team game and I seem to remember Henri saying he was in the right place at the right time but my memories of him are that of a great player, not Maurice's little brother.
