86/87 Canadiens roster

I found a program from a game I went to in Edmonton March 7, 1987 between the Oilers and the Canadiens, we had a tough team, a few of the characters as follows:
Craig Ludwig, Rick Green, Chris Chelios, Shayne Corson, John Kordic,Chris Nilan, Claude Lemieux, Mike McPhee, Sergio Momesso and Brian Skrudland. Probably did not lose to many puck battles.

to say this guy had a mean streak is an understatement!

One of my favorite hab's d-men of all time.
The sight of trent yawney laying on the ice, out cold, convulsing in spasms with blood bubbling from his mouth will never ever be erased.

That team was almost entirely Canadian. I think there were maybe two Americans? I can't really think of any Europeans.

Cheers,

Cheers,
Naslund was our only European and he was a very good one... The best we never had (sorry Saku...).

Naslund was on the 86-87 team, not 93 which is what the poster you quoted was referring to.

Habomatic is still forgetting Petrov as an European (well, Russian) but he hardly played that year so taht is understandable.

As for Europeans in 86, you are forgetting Svoboda.

And if I am forgetting anyone else, I apologize to them in advance!

Kjell Dahlin in 86.

could you imagine a line today of Corson, Nilan and Kordic or Lemieux? Tim Thomas would be pulling his hair out!

Yeah but in those days pretty much all rosters were loaded with tough characters like that. Nowadays a team with more than a few tough players is the exception to the rule.

Yes, I totally forgot Svoboda and Dahlin... Even if Dahlin had a very impressive first season point-wise, he was almost invisible on most nights.

It seems that only Boston is following this tradition. When they won the CUP, at least 10 guys could play very physical and drop the gloves in any games.
