I think in terms of a top 6/7, the Habs are a clear #2 after Boston.
Laviolette, Hall, Cleghorn, Gardiner, Mantha, Siebert, Reardon, Johnson, Langway, Chelios (all present or future HOF'ers).
Harmon, Talbot, Tremblay, Harris, Engblom (all at one point in their Montreal career first or second team NHL all-stars).
I think that an interesting debate could be had at #3 with Detroit and Toronto, much like the Bruins and the Canadiens - the Red Wings probably have a higher top end and the Leafs maybe have more depth.
