23?

http://tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=231580&hubname=nhl

The first part of the article says the habs won their 23rd cup back in 93.
I thought it was 24? Hence the whole 'drive for 25' deal.
Is this an error on their behalf, or are they discounting the cup the habs won before the NHL was the NHL?

We have 23 cup wins in the NHL. The 24th was before the NHL's inception.

I believe 1 of them was pre-NHL. So the Habs have only won 23 NHL championships.

I'm surprised nobody picked up on this...

The only remnants of their most recent championship are Patrice Brisebois and current coach Guy Carbonneau.
There was also a dude named Muller (who was my favourite on the team, besides Roy of course)

It should be noted that that article isn't TSN, it is CP. Another error in the article was

The last time the Canadiens finished first in the conference was 1993 when they won the Cup by beating the Kings in five games.

In 1916, the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey Association won their first of 24 Stanley Cups. The Canadiens, winners of the NHA, faced the Rosebuds from Portland in a best of five competition. For the first time, a best of five Stanley Cup championship went the distance. After the Rosebuds won game one, 2-0, Montreal captured games two and three to gain the advantage. Portland came back to even the series in game four to set up the deciding fifth game. In the final match, the Canadiens bounced back from an early 1-0 deficit to score two unanswered goals, with seldom-used Goldie Prodgers netting the Cup winner.

No coach with just one arm has ever won the Cup since 1916 also.

I noticed that earlier when I read it. It's funny because Muller is even mentioned in the article.

Not true... we also have 24 NHL championships....

The NHL was formed in 1917, however the NHL did not gain exclusive use of the Stanley Cup until 1926. Before that the NHL champ (eastern league) played the champs from the Western pro leagues....

In 1919 the Habs were NHL champs and played Seattle... The series was called after the Flu Influenza hit and killed many people in North America that year including Habs dman Joe Hall. Since the series was tied 2-2-1 (ties back then); there was no official cup winner that year. The only two years there was no cup champion were 1919 and 2005 (lockout)
