TSN is not wrong. It said 23 NHL Championships, not 23 Stanley Cup Championships.

The Habs have won 24 Cups, but 23 NHL Championships.

TSN was correct.

It must suck...

That they actually have to talk about the habs, since the Canucks and the Maple Laffs are not even in the playoff. Feels good, hey?

Tiresome, to me, is five threads a day complaining about everyone from TSN to Stiffler's Mom disrespects us.

No, not at all; we just happen to be the only NHL franchise that won a Cup pre-NHL but it doesn't mean we asterix the 24 we have won; the NHL might have de facto possession of the trophy but that doesn't mean we erase the non-NHL winners from the record book, right?

Guys, I've seen this mistake happen all the time...it makes me mad too but honestly we have 24 Cups, Bob McKensie and all the other TRUE GOOD hockey analysts know that as well, so I'm not really feeling angry about it. Lets just focus on our DRIVE FOR 25 right now!

GO HABS!

You are correct!
