I *think* it's 24 Cups and 23 NHL championships, as the Habs won one Cup before there was a NHL.

They won their 23rd in 1986 (my stupid memory trick is that they one their 23rd with Bob Gainey (no.23) on the roster), 24th in 1993.

Wow, I am glad I am not a Leaf fan.

Right...it makes no sense.

The beer hat has 23 Stanley Cups on it. Which is wrong. The Habs have 24.

For some reason since the first one is non-NHL, people don't seem to give us credit for it.

It was still a Stanley Cup win, giving the Habs 24 Cups.

To anybody who says 23 I say this: Go to the Bell Centre and count the banners yourself.

Bring an abacus if necessary.

The Canadiens won their first Cup in the NHA, a professional league that existed before the NHL. The Canadiens are older than the NHL.
