Joe Malone 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 #10 Candidate To Be Added:
1. Joe Malone (3)
2. Jacques Lemaire (2)
3. Sprague Cleghorn (1)

I'm voting for the two-time Art Ross winner and one of the most accomplish player in Canadiens History: Edouard ''Newsy'' Lalonde.



-------------------------------


ADD: Claude Provost, one of the most underrated Habs ever. One of the best defensive player ever, along with a great scoring touch. Unfortunately, the speedy right winger was behind Maurice Richard and Bernard Geoffrion all his career. Moreover, a playoff performer who had the challenge to stop the Hull's, Howe's and Mikita's.

He's next on my list. His average playoff resume is what put him outside the top-10 IMO.

I'm torn on this one between Lalonde/Courneyor/Durnan/Roy.....

I think I'm gonna go with Newsy Lalonde...

i won't vote since i don't know much about joe malone or newsy lalonde... except that they were apparently great players...

however, i think it's hard to believe patrick roy is not even in the top 10... i think the fact that some people hate him have influenced the results of the poll...

I think Roy deserve to be selected somewhere around the next couple of rounds. The fact that we don't take his resume outside Montreal put more dominant goaltenders like Dryden and Durnan ahead of him and his ''lack'' of longevity. His resume is still great but far from legensary in my opinion.

It's not like he was outside the top-10 of the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Montreal Canadiens is the greatest franchise in NHL history and with the most legendary players.

For me it was Lalonde or Cournoyer. Lalonde was apparently ridiculous from all accounts. The Roadrunner has the cup argument though, which all the Henri promoters ran with. Roy's career in Montreal is still mada-mada (not yet), as we say here in Japan.

Durnan is the right choice here. Ultra dominant, has two cups to go along with it. 6 Vezinas in 7 years is downright scary. Right there that puts him above Roy. As for Newsy, he's a pretty solid choice too.

Durnan gmv.

Yvan Cournoyer can't beat a guy that has 10 Stanley cups wins

Newsy Lalonde.. again.

To quote someone in a previous post, I don't think you're crazy for voting for Boom-Boom.

Patrick Roy falls after Newsy, IMO. Then Cournoyer, then Durnan.

Patty Roy, aka Casseau.
You can add both Jacques, Laperriere and Lemaire.

Wow. I'm surprised (and disappointed) that Durnan + Lalonde < Roy. Youngsters voting for who they've seen?

Ouch.... I can't beleive Dickie Moore might wind up close, or even past, top-15. The guy is in the top-5 NHL left-wingers of all-time, and played 90% of his games with the Habs! Moore is a much better choice than Roadrunner on nearly EVERY possible aspect.

ADD Secret Agent 14.

Because 90% of the Roy votes are from youngsters who know literally nothing about the older players.

I'm disgusted that Roy almost won a Top-10 spot.

IMO, He's about 15th.

Durnan, Yvon, Lalonde, and Dickie are all ahead of him, IMO.
