Top 25 Montreal Canadiens of all time: #6 (READ THE OP!)

TOP-25 MONTREAL CANADIENS
1. Maurice ''Rocket'' Richard (67.31%) http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=483344
2. Jean ''Le gros Bill'' Béliveau (69.67%) http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=486045

5. Howie ''The Stratford Streak'' Morenz (35.62%) http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=489069


Toe Blake was added.

Out of this list, which of these hockey players has been the best while playing with the Montreal Canadiens?

Please, only take into consideration the time they played for the Montreal Canadiens. For example, while being great hockey players, Rod Langway and Tony Esposito are excluded from this list as they only played a handful of game with the Habs. Moreover, you should take note that players like Chris Chelios and Patrick Roy, while worthy of considerations, only played part of their career in Montreal. While their legacy outside Montreal is undeniable, you should focus your attention on what they have accomplished in the Canadiens sweater. At last, any skaters who've played for the Canadiens in the pre-NHL ERA (1909-1917) are included.

Only poster with a least a little knowledge about these players should give their vote. Anyone who don't have a clue about any of the players mentioned should enjoy the show, read and learn about these players, but not cast their vote.

In every poll, I will add a little text plus statistics on every players to refresh memories.

Every fans of every boards are welcome to give their opinions. Discussion and opinions are greatly encourage and are a must to make this list a success.

The poll will run for approximately 48 hours. If 5% or less separate the first position and 1 or more players, an extra poll will run for approximately 24 hours to separate them and the loser(s) will stay in the race for the next poll and not automatically be assign a position.

Please, after casting your vote, write down which player should be included in the subsequent polls.

Poll #4 Candidate To Be Added:
1. Toe Blake (6)
2. Serge Savard (5)

I'm voting for the greatest goaltender of all-time: Jacques Plante. First in Canadiens history in games played and wins, 2nd in shutouts and GAA. Winningest goaltender in Habs history.

A goaltender who revolutionnize the way goaltending was played, not only by wearing a mask on regular basis, but by the way he played the puck outside of his crease, by the way he cut the angle extremely well, forcing the shooter to shoot extremely precise shot or pass the puck. He was an amazing playoff performer, and was one of the most important part of the greatest dynastie in hockey (along Richard and Harvey)

------------------------------------------------------------------
Add ''The Senator''. Great defensive defenseman. Conn Smythe winner.

How is it that for the #4 spot, Dryden had 11% to Roy's 18%...yet for the #6 spot there is a 30% difference

Voted Plante.

I don't see how Roy comes in ahead of Dryden btw, let alone Plante. That makes no sense. Dryden won it all by himself in 1971 and then won five more in eight seasons. Yes, he had a great team in front of him but its no coincidence that when he didn't play, the team stopped winning cups.

Roy leading Plante at this point?!?!?!?!?!!1

I thinks we gots some young'uns who need a history lesson. Some one already stated it:

WINNINGEST (is that a word??) GOALIE IN HABS HISTORY.

Revolutionized the position.
Ridiculous number of shutouts and wins.
Completely dominant for YEARS (hello trunk full of Vezinas)

I hope those people aren't taking Roy's Colorado time into consideration... And for the record, I became a goalie the year after Roy's rookie success 100% because I wanted to be like him, so if I can take off the blinders (or put them on perhaps?), anyone should be able to.

I agree 100%. Anyone who picks Roy over Plante seriously needs to read the OP.

Plante won 5 Vezina's IN A ROW.

I remember some guy asking me how I could put Gainey in a top5. Turns out he might have a slim shot at top10

Seriously though. COME ON PEOPLE! READ INSTRUCTIONS!!

But seriously. A lot of younger posters (not that I am greying in my 30s or anything!) might be a little handicapped when it comes to differentiating legendary status from greatness. IMO, that's the difference between Plante and Roy.

looking at all the polls, it's surprising how Roy is top 5 in the first two and then top 3 in the other 3 polls... yet he can't have a clear lead for #6

if he is not #6, he will win #7 for sure, but I voted for him since #3
