Great Moments in Last 10 years.

Figured would be nice to look at some positives over the last few years and enjoy some classy or inspirational moments from the habs. I watch some of these every now and then for kicks. Figured would be cool if we can make a nice big post with these moments.

I hope people add to the list, but I'll start off with my favourites:

Saku Koivu returns from cancer:



Saku Koivu returns to Montreal:



Rangers vs Montreal, biggest comeback in habs history:

NYR Feed:




RDS Feed:





Larry Robinson Jersey Retirement:



Patrick Roy Jersey Retirement:




Elmer Lach & Emile "Butch" Bouchard retirement ceremony





I'm obviously missing a lot but I don't like ones that have english voice overs despite superior quality. Loses the original appeal. Would be nice if you guys can help me add it into the thread

January 4th, 2012. Not just because of Lars Eller, but given the context of how the season is going, this one was special. Add to that that this was the return of L'Oreille, and this is a classic.



Don't know about "best" (although I was pretty damn jacked up), but this was a very important moment in the Habs/Bruins rivalry. This really set the tone for the Bruins/Habs drama last year. The next game was that insane 8-6 brawl fest, after that was the Habs convincing, dominating performance that was marred by the Pacioretty incident (That some, including me, believe was a direct result of this goal), last game was a 7-0 Bruins blowout, and then the intense playoff series that came down to one goal.



Selecting an elite goaltender and everyone thinking it was a **** idea at the time.



Jaroslav Halak and Mike Cammalleri's legendary 2010 Playoffs, I think I'll be telling my kids about this.




Worst Moment: Losing our captain.

Wept like a little girl.

Nothing since 93, retirements and the like doesn't compare to cup winning, that's why we watch it!!
I will say Lars Eller's 4 goals made feel good about the game.

Think i've been waiting for a star player too long, i hope lars can be the one.
I want a 50 goal scorer again, someone who i can bragg about to my leaf buddies.LoL

I'm a "habs only" fan, i don't watch any other hockey games, habs and that's it. When the habs are finished their season, my hockey is done for the year, i have yet to see boston getting the cup from last season.

Ryder lived just a few miles from me, he came home with the cup back in july, i wouldn't go see it.The only person i want to see with the stanley cup is a player with the habs jersey on, no other team matters.

Yup. Now we're reserved to celebrating a "cup run" and winning 2 series just like Leaf fans have been doing with the 93 season.

I just wanted to say what a great idea this thread was, any Koivu clip gets to me, I always loved Saku. I had forgotten what a nice ovation he got when he came back with Anaheim.

I'd say the Geoffrion jersey retirement was one of the most moving moments. The guy died the very morning of the retirement. I'd say that was bigger than Saku's return to Montreal. Especially considering they lowered Howie Morenz's jersey number and brought them up together because he told his wife (Morenz's daughter) that his number would one day be up there with her dad's. Saku was a guy from our generation but he was nowhere near as important as these guys. I mean c'mon Morenz died from a broken leg (or heart when he was told he would never be able to play another hockey game).

Another solid hard working play by Travis Moen and in contrast... Gonchar...

PS: If it were Ovechkin he never would have said it was a soft goal, he just said that cause it was 4-0 and Moen got the goal

This one is fresh in our minds but it's just so epic...

Koivu's return from Cancer was amazing...the trade for Kovy was a stunner...the Kovy/Tucker elbow was epic...and the Rangers 0-5 comeback was insane...there have been some great moments during the past 10 yrs or so...and Larry's 5 pt night might just be what the team and fans need for this season...might...

Just the way Lars skated up on that shootout, with confidence and keeping his feet moving. We need that on our shootout. How this kid was never given one chance before shocks me. I also thought Leblanc would've been given at least one try on the shootout, given how bad we've been this season trying a younger player out couldn't hurt much imo.

One of my favorites. It made me smile for days. I love how you can hear Harry Neale chuckling in the background. Kovalev took alot of heat, but I personally liked the guy. He made things exciting and showed up when it counted.

To me the greatest events were:
  • Geoffrion Night
  • Centennial Ceremony/Game
  • Capitals Game 6 and Halak first-star ovation

I can't believe that anyone put that goal. One of the most important goal in 2010.

I miss Moore.

One of my favs.

It also exemplifies everything that was and is wrong with Mike Green hockey. Worst performance in a 7 game span I have ever seen by a D.

Good times.

On the subject, Kovy's return performance against the Sens is still the most dominating performance by one player I have seen. Was there to see it too, which adds to the magic.

For me, it was Patrick Roy's jersey retirement. Mostly in part to the fact that I was there. From the moment we saw him walking the halls of the Bell Centre, to him walking down the stairs through the fans, to stepping on the ice with a Habs jersey and pointing to the logo and waiving to the crowd. It was something very special. His speech, his actions had me really emotional that night. I rarely get choked up ever, but that night I had tears in my eyes and so did many people. Truly something special.

Lars Eller's four goal night has some meaning as well and not just because he scored four goals, which alone is pretty amazing. The team was coming off a train-wreck of a road trip and the 2011 year ended in the worst way possible. Coming back to Montreal for the first game in 2012, fans were quiet in the arena and really searching for answers to why this team was so bad. With all the controversy added on Cunneyworth's lack to speak French, it put the city and the province in a really dark cloud.

Eller changed all of that. A danish kid, 22 years old, showed everyone that when it comes down to it, winning negates all. The fans in the arena, when he scored that fourth goal, erupted. When he scored his hat-trick, they gave him a standing ovation. When he came out for the first star, they gave him another standing ovation and cheered louder than I have heard in a long time. Nobody cared if this kid spoke French or came from Quebec. He produced, he was a big reason the Habs won that game and he showed his passion and emotions all night. The fans in the arena that night are the REAL fans. Eller brought out the best in this city. We want our team to win and Eller confirmed that.

I got emotional just writing that.

Boullion KOing Tucker would work as well. In fact any Hab leveling Tucker is a good memory.
