Good call on Dave Keon, forgot about him being from Quebec.

Larry Robinson.

Thanks for making him the first choice. Saved me the unnecessary hassle of having to read the rest of the list.

good choice...Steve Shutt is another good choice; was playing in the shadow of Lafleur , but was also a really good player

Well as you have McPhee on the list, I would think that you should have his partner Skrudland. He did score the fastest overtime goal for the habs. Not that in anyway he was the best Non Quebec Hab ever. Although he was better than Kilger

What about Douggie. Eventhough he wasn't there for long the good Kingston boy pulled through for the Habs at the end of a great career.

Bob Gainey gets my vote because he's the greatest defensive forward ever. He redefined how a two-way player should really play.

I would say Larry Robinson. He's on the Canadiens all-time team, so must have been pretty special.

I heard once that he hit some player so hard that he hit him THROUGH the boards. Is this just an overexaggerated myth, or is there some basis to it?

Man I loved Brian Skrudland. Wasn't an exceptional player by any means, but he definitely gave 100%, always went into the corners, wasn't afraid to mix it up and would contribute offensively.

I would go for Robinson. Some of the others on the list are in the HOF but not many had long careers with the Habs. I was thinking of Frank Mahovlich, who had his best years with Toronto and detroit.

Robinson hit Gary Dornhoefer of the Flyers & a piece of the boards fell off. He didn't knock him through the boards, but, the Big Bird could throw a solid check.

Robinson would get my vote, with Gainey a close second. A guy that could get mentioned, not because he was a great hockey player, but because of his impact at the time, is John Ferguson. He was largely responsible for the Habs success during his short career.
