Why is Carbonneau the top rated skater who wore a helmet?

...and no, Steve Shutt doesn't count.

Also: Paul DiPietro > Pierre Turgeon

When I first read Koivu at 41 I figured that was too low but then when you look at who's ahead of him, it's tough to move him up much. Chelios is at 40, he wasn't here that long but he did pick up some hardware.

Good to see some guys like Ted Harris and Rick Green making the list.

I also vote we open nominations for the top 10 WORST players to ever play say... 20 games or more with Montreal.

We could do it the same way we do our prospect ranks!

...and no, you cannot vote for Ryan O'Byrne in round 1

2) Mariusz Czerkawski - He had some good years with the Islanders but his stats with MTL are pathetic. 43gp 5g 9a 14pts He was also lazy.

Probably. I base my opinion on him on what he says. He's a joke.

Anyway, go habs.

Wait, you thought he was wrong when he once said we have 4 4th lines? I could've sworn everyone agreed with that one.

They should have put D. Savard over Turgeon with his stanley cup assistant coach win.

number 2 on the list, Mr Beliveau was at the Islanders game and was sat behind the Habs bench.

would like to have shaken his hand or got a pic but he was already surrounded by people.

See when I look at that list in my opinion Skrudland, Bobby Smith and Claude Lemieux were greater Habs than Stephane Richer yet he placed much higher on their list.

Markov was too low.

And Joe Malone got robbed, yo. Poor Joe Malone.

Nilan should be there , just because he was the fans favorite ..
don't start on Peter or we will have to disagree and that would ruin our perfect record.

The biggest question mark

- Rod Langway. What has he done to warrant a higher ranking than Glen Harmon, Jimmy Roberts ... and even Herb Gardiner?
I question the ranking of guys traded here, The Big M for one, or guys that became stars after they left, like Langway. Arguing #'s 76 and 91 is nitpicking but if Claude Larose was kidnapped, his team would've been fine. Terry Harper was much more valuable. Never a fan favourite as he was as awkward a player as has ever donned the uniform but highy underated. If you asked Bobby Hull about playing Mtl, he'd complain about Harper and Provost on his side of the ice. Larose ? He was just there.

Whoa. Larose had incredibly strong jaw and neck muscles. I put it to you, sir, that he was the best gum chewer in the history of the Habs and definitely the league leader when he played for us. I'm pretty sure he used 0-0 gauge gum, too, the hardest there is, and he doubled up nearly all the time. And unlike a wuss like Harper, he didn't need a helper to start his gum for him, he did it all on his own. Harper was booed mercilessly at the Forum for chewing soft gum and fans never forgave for the time he chewed a caramel.

Larose was the best ever at getting really mad right after the linesman arrived. Lucky for his opponent or he'd have been in big trouble. If Harper ever tried to down a caramel while skating, there'd have been a multi player pile up, could've wiped out the entire Hillman family.

There he goes, raggin' on the Hillmans again. Larry Hillman was the only player who didn't use shoulder pads when playing, did you know that? His neck was so short that shoulder pads cut down on his field of vision too much. True story.

And Claude Larose also had great hair. Ever notice he looked a bit like Harpo Marx? Actually, he looked a lot like our next door neighbour, and she looked a lot like Harpo Marx.

A Larose quote made it into my crowd's lexicon. He was interviewed and said, 'I don't fight often, but when I do, I can go'


I have friends that haven't heard that in 35 years and I can e mail that line to them and get a response.

You guys are pretty good posters, so it's quite a shame that I'm now going to have to kill you both.
