I agree. I saw the Habs in Calgary every time they played for 10 years. Also saw games in Edmonton and Vancouver. Seemed like the Habs fans outnumbered the home teams in virtually every case.

Then there was the Canada Cup in the early 80's. Gretzky, Lafleur and
Perrault playing on the same line. Even in Edmonton, they screamed for Guy.

Worst part was in a pre-tournament game, Gretzky accidentally took Perrault into the boards hard and knocked him out of the tourney. Best line I ever saw. Sigh....
