Guy Lapointe was added.

Out of this list, which of these hockey players has been the best while playing with the Montreal Canadiens?

Please, only take into consideration the time they played for the Montreal Canadiens. For example, while being great hockey players, Rod Langway and Tony Esposito are excluded from this list as they only played a handful of game with the Habs. Moreover, you should take note that players like Chris Chelios and Patrick Roy, while worthy of considerations, only played part of their career in Montreal. While their legacy outside Montreal is undeniable, you should focus your attention on what they have accomplished in the Canadiens sweater. At last, any skaters who've played for the Canadiens in the pre-NHL ERA (1909-1917) are included.

Only poster with a least a little knowledge about these players should give their vote. Anyone who don't have a clue about any of the players mentioned should enjoy the show, read and learn about these players, but not cast their vote.

In every poll, I will add a little text plus statistics on every players to refresh memories.

Every fans of every boards are welcome to give their opinions. Discussion and opinions are greatly encourage and are a must to make this list a success.

The poll will run for approximately 48 hours. If 5% or less separate the first position and 1 or more players, an extra poll will run for approximately 24 hours to separate them and the loser(s) will stay in the race for the next poll and not automatically be assign a position.

Please, after casting your vote, write down which player should be included in the subsequent polls.

Poll #7 Candidate To Be Added:
1. Guy Lapointe (6)
2. Tom Johnson (2)
3. Steve Shutt (1)
4. Sprague Cleghorn (1)

For this time around, I will vote for the 2nd greatest goaltender in the Montreal Canadiens history. While he only played 9 yearsiwith the Habs, it was one of the most dominating 9 years ever played by a goaltender. A Calder, a Conn Smythe and 5 Vezina trophy, but more importantely: 6 Stanley Cup. The 1976-79 ERA ended when Dryden announce his retirement

I think Henri, Roy, and Dryden will duke this one out.

I'm yet undecided, but leaning toward Dryden.

I've been voting Dryden since Plante...

I don't know what more could a guy do.

I'm yet undecided, but leaning toward Dryden.
Very close between Ken Dryden and Henri Richard. Richard is definitely next on my list, while perhaps it's time to see Patrick Roy on the list after those two.

Henri for me.

Then Dryden.

Then Durnan.

Both Durnan and Dryden would of massacred Roy in wins if they decided to play longer careers.

I voted Henri. 11 Stanley Cups is just insane. He was here longer than Dryden so the nod goes to him.

Add Carbo too.

I actually have Henri a bit lower. While he had a lengthy career, there are some guys who contributed more at the peak of their game.

The poll question, verbatim, is "Out of this list, which of these hockey players has been the best while playing with the Montreal Canadiens?" My interpretation of the question changes the rankings a bit, and I might rate Henri below a guy like Lalonde, Dryden, and maybe a few others I'm considering (Roy, Gainey, Cournoyer, Geoffrion).

Add Shutt, I agree with Beakermania.

You can probably take denis savard out of the suggestions for people to add...

If we are only considering time in montreal, theres probably about 50 players better than him not on your suggestion list....

Frank Mahovlich is the first name that comes to mind....

Heck Jose Theodore did more in a habs uni than Denis Savard... as did Turgeon, Recchi, Damphousse, Muller, Langway, Richer, Corson, and many, many more...

There's even four guys on the current team who were undisputably better "habs careers" than Denis Savard. Koivu, Kovalev, Markov, Brisebois,

Look, as I already said, it was only suggestion from the top of my head. You don't need to take a player from that list.

Anyway, I think I'll just delete that list for the next poll. People seems confuse by it, even tohugh I clearly state they are only suggestion.

I didn't looked over the suggestion list since I've created. Tell me the guys you would like to see there and I'll add them.

Okay I settled on Dryden, but I'm starting the Newsy Lalonde bandwagon next vote.

Ahhh, I know him too! After Dryden and Richard I'll have to go over the list pretty carefully. Very undecided.

Durnan was very close to Dryden, IMO.

Well how deep are we going, just to 25... or do we want to keep going for 50... cause there is only one guy i can think of not on the list who has a shot at top 25 and thats
Frank Mahovolich

If we wanna go to top 50 we can talk about
Vincent Damphousse
Mark Recchi
Kirk Muller
John Ferguson
Stephane Richer

off the top of my head....

Brisebois has more career PTS as a Hab than everyone on that list aside from Damphousse.

Ken Dryden for sure. You could even make a case for him over Plante.

I've written this before but statistically he could be the most dominant goalie in the history of the NHL. The only thing that he doesn't have is the longevity. While he played though, he accomplished everything a goalie possibly could. A .790 win percentage, almost as many career shutouts as losses. And he almost single handedly beat one of the greatest teams ever assembled in what is widely considered to be the biggest Stanley Cup upset of all-time. 6 cups in 8 seasons, multiple Vezinas.... Ken's the man.

I really don't know actually. I promessed I would run this until 25 players are selected, but it will depend if I have the time to do it. We'll see
