Fun fact: my grandfather worked with a lot of Habs in the off-season (back when they all had other jobs, heh) and my mother is named after Kenny Mosdell's wife.

By the way, does anyone have any more pictures like this one? I mean from this era and coloured the same way? Makes for an amazing wallpaper on my phone, but it'd be neat to have a few choices.

wich resembled closely a 2 X 4.
Man have we evolved since then!!

You can say players are bigger and shoot harder but that photo of Bobby Orr trying to stop a shot from Guy Lafleur is amazing.Orr is wearing no helmet and could have been killed.There is a story Bobby Orr blocking a Bobby Hull slap shot and bearly missing his head

I was the salesperson that sold Guy Lafleur his first stereo system.
It was a Fisher, from Eaton's Laval the first year it was open.
It's been a while but I think it was 1974.

My dad is in the process of scanning pictures for his backups and he sent me these from February 79. It was a few days before my 9th birthday and it was going to be my first game at the Forum. I love that 70yo techno geek so much.

We played Pittsburgh and believe it or not we won 12-0! What a first experience. Goalies were Michel "Bunny" Larocque and Denis Heron. I'd kill to find the boxscore for that game.

**** yeaaah!


Those virgin boards...


Sitting on THE bench. I remember feeling intimidated.


Waiting for Steve Shutt's autograph, my favorite player then (him, Robinson and Roy: favorites Habs ever). Notice Jesus behind me, waiting in line like everybody else.


Gilles Lupien


Pierre Mondou and Mario Tremblay

Game was played on February 22, 1979.

Short game summary:

Quote:
Michel Larocque recorded his 12th career shutout and Guy Lapointe added four assists in Montreal’s 12-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

AP wire services game report:

Quote:
Sleeping Canadiens Arise To Rout Penguins, 12-0 MONTREAL (AP) -

The Pittsburgh Penguins might have been better off letting sleeping Canadiens lie: The Penguins downed Montreal 3-1 at Pittsburgh Wednesday night in the. opener of a home-and-home series with the defending National Hockey League champions. The defeat, which snapped a 14-game Canadiens unbeaten string, also marked the end of a streak in which right wing Guy Lafleur had scored a point in' 12-consecutive games. Well, Lafleur wasted no time starting another streak, and neither did the Canadiens. Lafleur scored after just 2:06 had been played — igniting a 12-0 rout of the Penguins and producing the season's highest goal production. Mario Tremblay, Yvon Lambert and Doug Risebrough had two goals and an assist each. Guy Lafleur, Mark Napier, Jacques Lemaire, Pierre Larouche, Rick- Chartraw and Pierre Mondou contributed single goals. Defenseman Guy Lapointe earned four assists as every Canadien on the ke — except netminder Michel Larocque — earned at least one scoring point. Larocque stopped 25 shots for his second ' shutout of the year. For Risebrough, who had missed 17 games since suffering a shoulder injury on Jan. 6, the contest marked a successful return to action.

In the other NHL games, the New York Islanders downed the St. Louis Blues 6-1, the Chicago Black Hawks downed the Buffalo Sabres 4-2 and the Vancouver Canucks 'blanked the Colorado Rockies 3-0. The Canadiens took 37 shots on goalies Denis Herron - who beat them Wednesday — and Greg Millen in remaining unbeaten at home against the Penguins since Jan. 2, 1969. Islanders 6, Blues 1 Mike Bossy scored a goal for the ninth consecutive game, leading the Islanders to their 13th consecutive home victory over the Blues. His 48th goal of the year brought the secondyear right wing within one game of the 10-game record shared fay Andy Bathgate of the New York Rangers and Bobby Hull of the Chicago Black Hawks. Black Hawks 4, Sabres 2 Bob Murray scored twice, carrying Chicago past Buffalo for the second night 'and giving the Black Hawks their fourth straight victory. The loss was the Sabres' fourth in a row. Canucks 3, Rockies 0 Goals by Ron Sedlbauer, Stan Smyl and Lars Lindgren. backed Gary Bromley's first shutout of the year and helped Vancouver hand Colorado its eighth straight loss. PENGUINS STUMBLE — Montreal goalie Michel Larocque keeps his eyes on the action after a collision with two Pittsburgh Penguins, Orest Kindrachuck and Kick Kehoe (17) during first-period action Thursday night in Montreal. The Canadiens, losers to the Wednesday, got more than enough revenge in a romp. (AP Laserphojo);

rare color picture Habs/Rangers

Pretty sure the pic is at Madison Square, but the same would be true of any big city then:

No adult in the crowd wearing jerseys, looking like like 12 year olds. Back when adults knew how to be adults...and note, no kids either, they were in bed, where they belonged.

They asked Gump Worsely, who retired in 1973 I think, why he didn't wear a mask. His reply?

"my face is my mask"

Yvan Cournoyer, my favorite Habs forward of all time, said **** you to the curved blade. His backhand was unbelievable. He played with a straight blade until 1978.

He was also ambidextrous , and switched hands on breakaways all time. His wrist shot was massive as well.

The curved blade changed hockey forever, and not necessarily for the better.

Really interesting. Do you happen to know around what time people started wearing jerseys to game? And bringing kids?

Exactly. Even the French admired American style in th 50's and 60's. Now we dress like kids and slobs.

I see American adult men in Hong Kong wearing shorts, t shirts and sneakers when they come here, and they look like 12 year olds. People laugh at them.

I had to dress properly to go to a game at the Forum, or fly in a plane, with my mother, until 1980. After that. I don't know.

You know what Young Habs fans should do? We should start a style revival at the Bell, and dress beautifully, from the Reds to the whites, for one game a year. That would be so cool. No jerseys, no slobs.

Montreal has style, we should show it.

Forum Night.

Molson is my age exactly, he would love it. He knows what the Forum looked like in 1978.

Would freak the players out as well.

I think we could go viral on this.

Y'know, this is actually a cool idea. "Forum Night", for an original-six matchup, complete with both teams in vintage jerseys and the fans encouraged to wear old-style evening dress. All music through the PA to be jazz-based or early rock'n roll.

Now if we could get prices rolled back on concessions...

Seriously, I love the concept for the retro feel, but I wonder what possible upside there is from a marketing point of view. Maybe a tie-in with booklets & merch on the Old Forum. Is there enough left in the Habs' heavily-mined history to make it worthwhile? Not sure. Maybe wait until 2015 for the 20th anniversary of the Old Forum closing.

EDIT: How about filming "Forum Night" as part of a documentary on the Old Forum? It would have to be on the 25th anniversary, 2020, and would be a terrific tribute. Or expand it to a documentary on all the other legendary arenas. The angle would be how fans themselves have changed, how being a fan of hockey (and sports in general) has evolved from a night at the opera to today, where it's a loud, free-for-all, rock-concert experience, where the game is choreographed against blasting dance tunes. Then flash to Forum Night and show the time-bending visual of the entire crowd in their retro Old-Forum attire, celebrating a perception of the sport that no longer exists.
