OK, 18 cups for me.
( In my first cup game back in 1916, I kept popping up and trying to bat away the snowflakes falling so I can see, the next thing I know the guy besides me pops up with me and then the next guy an so on. Little did I know the thing would catch on)

You surely must have seen at least 24 Cup wins since you witnessed the 1st Cup win ever by the Habs in 1916...

Old age makes one forget things i guess...

2 for me, even though I was only crawling around in 86..

Its fun to know your team has atleast won a cup in your lifetime.. Weird how certain teams in long long cup draughts can continue to attract fans with mediocrety and poor management...

Hmmm... I've been alive for one, witnessed zero.

I'm really young now that I think of it.

I was alive for 2, but saw 93.. In 86, I was six and wasn't even in the country so I didn't know what hockey was.. Got to Canada in 88, became a Habs fan in 89 when I moved to Montreal from Toronto.

Yeah, we aren't getting any younger. Oh for the good old days in the 1960s-70s, when Habs Stanley Cups seemed to grow on trees.

I was 6 when they won in 1993. I do remember the win of course (my older brothers were so happy, how could I not be?), but really my awareness of the situation wasn't top notch since I could not grasp the very notion of how glorious this day was. So technically I won one, but really, I feel like the next one will really be my first.

This was the first one I remember, I was born in 62 but do not remember any in the 60's... 1971 was Dryden's first year right?

10. I remember watching the habs in 1966, but don't actually recall a Cup win till 68, when Toe Blake retired.

(They asked this same question on the Leafs board, but no one replied....)
