Some notes from the Canadiens sponsor supper last night
Every year until the 2009 season, the Canadiens will honor an original six team on this date. Dec 4 is the original inception date for the Canadiens.
I was at the sponsors supper last night, met with the whole team, got pics with everyone and had some nice conversations.
Highlights were definately meeting Saku, Ninimaa (metal head), Souray, Rivet, Komi and Downey. Super nice guys.
But I gotta tell you meeting Lafleur, Richard, Beliveau,Cournoyer, Houle, Gainey, Carbo....were just moments Ill never forget.
Even Bouillon was there and looked in good spirits.
Mr Boivin is a very passionate about the team, and its good to see him very committed to winning.
I wont go into too much details about the convos I had, but lets just say Huet is starting tomorrow night, but im sure you all knew anyways.
The tickets for that game if you are a season ticket holder are ENORMOUS!
I would imagine they present the team with a framed photo of a classic game invite a few ex players from older eras to do a ceremonial puck drop and show a video before the game!
He would have to blacken out his face in all the pictures because our habs were getting jealous and were in serious fear that if these pictures of such a handsome man would ever surface that their wives may start to stray. Don't question it, just accept it.
