Hockey News releases Canadiens All-Time Team

Just got my monthly issue of The Hockey News, which is called 'The Best of Everything in Hockey'. I thought I'd let you guys know about what they had to say about the Habs. Here it is (some parts of it).

Best player ever: Maurice Richard
GP G A Pts PIM
978 544 421 965 1,285

Team's Best Line


1. Maurice Richard (Forward, 1942-60): The greatest French Canadian, sports hero of all time, Richard is considered the most dangerous player from the blueline in. When NHL president Clarence Campbell suspended him for the playoffs in 1954-55, it resulted in a riot at the Montreal Forum. Goalies who faced the wrath of the Rocket claim they knew they were in trouble when they saw the fire in his eyes. He had lightning quick moves and a dynamite wrist shot. Richard was the first player to score 50 goals in a season (1944-45) and the first to reach the career 500-mark. He played on five Cup champions, won the Hart Trophy in 1947 and was a first team all-star eight times.

2. Guy Lafleur (Forward, 1971-85): Lafleur was one on the most exciting players ever. He was known for his rushes down the ice, his hair flowing behind him, also for his booming shot. He was the first player in NHL history with at least 50 goals and 100 points in six straight seasons.

3. Jean Beliveau (Center, 1951-71): During the Canadiens' five consecutive Stanley Cup seasons in the 1950s, Beliveau was awesome, scoring 186 goals and 210 assists in regular season play. But that was just the beginning. He was smooth and graceful throughout the 1960s.

4. Doug Harvey (Defenseman, 1947-61): Only Bobby Orr was a better defenseman than Harvey, who had an innate talent for controlling the tempo of a game, speeding things up or slowing them down as he saw fit. And his mind was so sharp he knew precisely when to do either.

5. Larry Robinson (Defenseman, 1972-89): Robinson, known as 'Big Bird', was highly competitive and, given his imposing size, toughness came to him naturally. But besides being an excellent defender, he was adept enough with the puck to be an offensive threat every time he touched it.

6. Jacques Plante (Goalie, 1952-63): Plante played the majority of his career in an era when netminders didn't wear masks, plus he understood the game better than other goalies who followed and attended to emulate him. He had confidence in his ability to play the game and win.

Coach: Toe Blake (1955-68): Blake denifited from coaching at a time when coaches held the hammer and could use the threat of banishement to the minors over a player's head. But he also knew how to motivate his players to their string of five consecutive Cups.

Debut season: 1917-18

The reason I said that is because when I went to the laffs game the dogs were $2.85 tax in. So if its $1.89 american, it would be around $2.30 canadian, then add tax and you get $2.85 (these aren't exact calculations) do the same to the beer which is much more than 3.32 and so on.
