I was born into a Hab fanatical family. I grew up in the 70s and the Habs were the gold standard. My dad has pictures of me sitting on his knee watching games (I was 18 months old). He is 70 years old now and we still talk hockey every week and he still recalls the glorious Habs players, it gives me goosebumps as I type, his favourites were Peter Mahovlich, Yvan Cournoyer, John Ferguson, Dick Duff, Jacques Lemaire, Yvon Lambert, just to name a few. He still talks about that era of the Habs with such passion in his voice but is far less involved today. He tells me that there are too many teams and he dislikes the way players change teams so often. In my childhood, the Habs were a religion to my family and I learned to love them deeply. I cried as a kid when the stastny's eliminated the Habs, so many great and brutal games with the Nordiques, I hope they come back. I am a Hab fan and would wish nothing different.
