Serge Savard 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. Serge Savard (10)
2. Steve Shutt (1)
3. Georges Vézina (1)

I'm voting for the 2nd greatest defenseman in Montreal Canadiens history and a fabulous all-around defenseman: Larry Robinson. A player with incredible offensive tools, along with great defensive positionning and big reach. Probably one of the hardest hitter in the history of the sport.



---------------------------------------------
ADD:

Guy Lapointe, last but not least of the big three. Amazing offensive defenseman.

How is the guy with over a 1,000 points and 11 stanley cups not a top 5 hab of all time?

Because the others were better? It's not like he didn't make the top-5 of the Columbus BlueJackets. He would of made the top-5 with any other franchise, even the Detroit Red Wings. I have after the 6 voted right now + Robinson and Dryden.

Had a hard time picking between Robinson and Richard... I went with Richard.

Add Lapointe.

Larry Robinson edges out Dryden. He was so good for so long. One of the best defensemen of all-time. 17 great seasons.

Gonna have to vote Robinson just edging out Dryden... I might be influenced by the fact that there's only 1 d-man on the list so far, but it's a coin toss anyway.

Add Carey Price

Robinson
Dryden
Henri
Roy

Henri is a bit of an anomaly for me. He was never truly a dominant player, but he was very good for a long time and contributed to a lot of Cup wins. The guys above him were dominant players, and frankly so was Roy, but Roy gets knocked down due to Henri's longevity.

Big bird for me, and you can add the other member of the big three, Pointu!

Roy, Dryden and Pocket Rocket are close runner-up!

I think you'll be waiting a while for fellow bandwagoners for Cournoyer. He's somewhere around 12 on my list, and most who've posted their lists tend to agree.

Played 16 seasons with Montreal, 4th all time for goals, 4th all time for assists, 10 cups(4 of which were as captain), Conn Smythe. I just can't think of anyone more deserving after Robinson and Richard besides maybe Dryden and boom boom.

Robinson and then Richard

Savard will start picking up some votes as we get out of the top 8.

I'm going to make a bold prediction that PATRICK ROY drops out of the Top-10.

#7 - Larry Robinson
#8 - Henri Richard
#9 - Ken Dryden
#10 - Bill Durnan

Well, it was between Henri and the Big Bird for me on this one, and since the non-Roy vote seems to favour Larry that is who I vote for.

My next three would be Robinson, Pocket Rocket and Boom Boom.

add: Tom Johnson
