If going based only on players I've seen play:

1. Saku Koivu: Just about everything you could ever want in a player. He's skilled, has leadership abilities, is a grinder and will outwork just about anyone out there.

2. Guy Carbonneau: Another great leader and grinder. I loved how he was always willing to sacrifice his body to block shots at the point.

3. Larry Robinson: Another great leader with a great work ethic. Probably the best defenseman I've known in this lifetime.

4. Guy Lafleur: One of the most electrifying players to play the game.

5. Patrick Roy: Love to hate him. Absolutely stood on his head in the playoffs but was a high maintenance player. If he was just a bit more of a team player, he'd have been 10X better (is that even possible?) but the game was always about him and how he gave the Habs two Stanley cups.

Here are my favorites:

1) Maurice Richard-The best player ever to don a Habs jersey

2) Guy Lafleur-The most electrifying player I can remember watching

3) Jean Beliveau-The best leader ever for the Habs

4) Larry Robinson-The best all round defenceman to ever play for the Habs

5) Doug Harvey-The greatest defenceman in his era and still one of the most innovative of all time

Honorable Mention:

Jacques Plante
Dickie Moore
Mats Naslund

Funny how a player appeals to you sometimes. I would've bet that Peter Popovic wouldn't show on the list.

Can't say I'm a big fan of the Flower, Larry, Maurice, etc... those guys killed my Leafs back in the day.

1. Larry Robinson
2. Guy Carbonneau
3. Patrick Roy (before the hissy fit)

The last two spots are up for grabs by all number of great Habs I've seen. I'm surprised to see Benoit Brunet get so much love on this thread. He was also one of my faves back in the day, even though he was substantially more brittle than Eric Lindros' skull.

Hell, even Cam Connor and Pat Hughes killed your Leafs in those days. You could have included Kordic and Courtnall, and technically Doug Jarvis.

A goalie who can be seen on the CBC. He was with the Habs when Roy came up. Not bad but certainly not the best.

Top 5

1) Lafleur
2) Cournoyer
3) Beliveau
4) Naslund
5) Roy

HM to Guy Lapointe cause he made me laugh my ass off when I got coached by him at Cournoyer's hockey school in the summer of 72
