Well they're technically right, aren't they? This is our 99th season, 100th year or something? I dunno, let's call that Daniel Bigras guy or whatever his name was.

There we go again. It,s our 100th year, but our 99th season. Or the other way around. But there's a 100 in there, for sure.

This stuff again.

It is the 100th year of existence of the Habs. If anyone doubts it, write down each calendar year since the first and count

And they're right. This is the 100th season, the team will be a hundred years old at the end of it. I'm twenty-eight years old, so I'm currently living my 29th year on this earth. Seems simple enough.

This isn't rocket science. Say a person is born today, December 5th, 2008. They will be in their 1st season(year) until their 1st birthday which would be on December 5th, 2009.

The Canadiens came to life 100 years ago in 1909. This is our 99th season because of the lost season to the lockout.

Somewhere on this fine forum, I had created a table showing season by season to help explain it. Unfortunately, the search engine isn't working very well and I couldn't find it.

This man knows what he's talking about.

December 4th was our 99th birthday.

As of 12:00 AM on December 5th, we are living in our 100th year.

How hard is it to understand?
