I don't recall what happened with Dryden in 1971, but I do remember the arrogant ******* saying before the 1975 season (and don't get all over me if I recall the quote not quite correctly): "We are going to reclaim what is rightfully ours."

Meaning the Stanley Cup. Well, I have hated the Habs ever since. But gotta admit, he backed it up: They won the next four years in a row. Not even close.

Check out these season records:

1975-76: 58-11-11: 127 points.
1976-77: 60-8-12: 132 points.
1977-78: 59-10-11: 129 points.
1978-79: 52-17-11: 115 points.

Boy, they really fell off that last year, eh? Absolutely unbelievable.

I can remember Bob Miller at the time just couldn't believe any team can go a whole season with only 8 losses. 60 wins!
