Canadiens going loonie!

Starting in March, more than 10 million copies of the Canadian dollar coin will adorn the legendary Montreal Canadiens logo.

I don't get it. It's the Habs' centennial season, but.... who were we playing against 100 years ago? Isn't it the 100th season for all the original 6 teams?

The NHL didnt come into being until 1917, and the "Maple Leafs" , "Bruins" etc. werent formally established until the late 1920s.

While the Montreal Canadiens hockey team was created in 1909 and first played in the National Hockey Association...


(or something like that)

anything?

How many hockey teams have you seen on it?

I agree, they put alot on coin money, but thats sports in general, never have they done it for a single team,

It is definatly an honor.

I'll set up a site to sensibilize(I need the real word that fits here...) people to my dream of collecting all the loonies.
I'll set up a place where they can mail any Habs loonie they find. If they dont have Habs loonies...it doesnt matter. I'll accept two regular loonies instead.
