If there were a second 10-disc "Memorable Games" DVD put out, what would you include?

I was watching the 1979 Stanley Cup clincher vs. the New York Rangers on the NHL Network today and it got me thinking, if there were a second volume of the "Memorable Games in Canadiens History" put out, what games would you include?
I'm thinking that game could be on it, and other Cup clinchers including 1971 and 1973. If there are older games from the 1950s and 1960s, I'd go for that too.
For reference, this is on the 10-disc set that was released a few years ago:
(1) Canadiens vs. Maple Leafs - 1960 Stanley Cup finals Game 4
(2) Canadiens vs. Red Army - New Year's Eve 1975
(3) Canadiens vs. Bruins - 1977 Stanley Cup finals Game 4
(4) Canadiens vs. Bruins - 1979 Stanley Cup semi-finals Game 7
(5) Canadiens vs. Nordiques - Good Friday Brawl 1984
(6) Canadiens vs. Flames - 1986 Stanley Cup final Game 5
(7) Canadiens vs. Kings - 1993 Stanley Cup finals Game 5
(8) Canadiens vs. Stars - Final game at the Forum 1996
(9) Canadiens vs. Oilers - Heritage Classic 2003
(10) Canadiens vs. Rangers - Habs' greatest comeback 2008

Keep in mind, I have heard of no second volume of such a DVD set planned, I'm just posting this for discussion purposes.

Since the first 10 are out of the way, I'd include this one in the next set:

I would like the Stanley Cup winning games from the first four series of the five in a row and the other three from the four in a row and the last one Beliveau won and the last one with Henri Richard as captain.After those nine any other Stanley Cup clinching game.

Does a Memorable Game necessarily have to be a win? Because the 8-6 donnybrook this season was most definitely "memorable".. Although I suppose if they're selling it in a DVD, they'd want it to be a win.

Game 6 Habs vs. Caps in Montreal was a transcendental Hockey moment.

At the start of the game, the Canadiens had been written off by hockey experts everywhere.

The Caps stormed Montreal for 50+ shots and Halak stopped them all as the frenzy and tension built in the Bell Centre...

When Halak returned to accept the number one star, it was as though the building had lifted above its foundation.

It was magical.

The game against Buffalo where the Sabres released the inner Frankenstein of John LeClair and the last time Roy had control of his temper.

The second New-Years game against The Red Army was good, we won that one.

The 1971 playoff game against Boston when we came back from a 5-1 deficit to win 7-5.

Centennial game is a good choice, so is Saku's return.

I wonder if they have a lot of older games on film, like the Rocket's 500th goal game.

It shouldn't be too hard to put together another 10 game series.

Speaking of the Red Army vs Habs rivalries, here's a look at that second game with some good video clips. Check out a young Bob Gainey giving a first intermission interview.

Here's the Game 6 footage. Definitely a wild one. Halak was in a whole 'nother level of human ability.

Lafleur's return to the Forum as a Ranger in 89 has gotta be there (YT linked earlier).

Game 5 vs the Nordiques in 93. Roy takes a bullet to his shoulder, leaves the game, gets it frozen, comes back, Habs win in OT.

Game 2 vs the Kings in 93 is much more classic than game 5. I think that was the last night the Forum ghosts intervened in a game.

Game 6 vs the Bruins in 02, part of Theodore's miracle body of work that season, IIRC he made his famous behind-his-back blocker save that night.

They need to go with the best games out there instead of simple Cup clinchers. Sure it's nice to see the Habs win in the Forum in '93, but that game wasn't really exciting, at least not compared to the Desjardins hat trick.

I have the 10 disc set, but I would also want the following...

Game 2 of the 1993 finals

Game 3 of the first round against quebec in 1993

Roy's near 70 save performance at the boston garden in what I believe was game 3 or 4 of the 94 first round

^ Game 5. 60 saves in the Garden, Muller the OT winner I think. Probably the best single game goaltending performance in that year's playoffs, though Kirk MacLean's SCF game 1 against the Rangers came close. Pity the Habs lost that series, but the appendicitis drained Roy. He ran out of gas by game 7 and the Habs weren't hungry enough to overcome that.

That was on the 10 disc set already and Ryder didn't score a hat trick, his third one was tipped in by Streit, and they changed the score sheet to give Streit credit.

Here are 3 from the “quiet” dynasty I’d love to see:

April 13, 1969
Montreal 4 – Boston 3
The Beliveau lead Canadiens manage to hold off Orr’s Bruins for 1 more year. The Habs tied this game with just over 1 minute left, and proceeded to win in OT.

April 8, 1971
Montreal 7 – Boston 5
Despite going up against the NHL’s greatest scoring team (Bost set a record with 399 goals that year), the Habs (lead by Jean Beliveau’s 2G, 2A night) come back from 5-1 down to take game 2 in one of the NHL’s biggest upsets.

May 18, 1971
Montreal 3 – Chicago 2
Ken Dryden and the Habs win the cup in one of the most memorable playoff seasons in league history. Despite being down 2-0 in the game, Lemaire’s centre ice stunner, and Henri Richard’s 2 third period goals seal the win for Montreal.

Unfortunately I think most of the 1971 playoffs has been lost. If it's found that's a playoffs I'd pay a lot of money to see. They really were given no shot against the Bruins in round 1.

The 71 playoffs were fantastic. I believe a lot of CBC's hockey footage ended up at Ryerson University for fine arts students to practice video editing. Our public broadcast corporation with no foresight on the importance of archiving national treasures from our national sport (please don't correct me with lacrosse).
