Now, your Favourite Hab past/present?

With people talking about their least favourite Hab of the past and present, all I could think about were those players I loved...so post them here!

>#1 would have to be Patrick Roy ...No explanation needed.
>Captain Kirk Muller...loved him in the Cup run in '93!

Currently, Saku Koivu & Jose Theodore...who doesn't like them?!

Well it seems many people on this board don't like Theodore, me not being one of them though.

My favorite habs right now are as follows...

1. Mike Ribeiro
2. Sako Koivo (</3 Don Cherry)
3. Mike Komisarek
4. Andrei Markov
5. Michael Ryder

My favorite Hab is Steve Bégin. I like the way he play. Nothing fancy, he keep it simple, great determination, play physically. Bégin is followed by Saku Koivu and Michael Ryder.

Hmmm, for past it would have to be:

Lafleur - I give him the edge over greats like Richard and Beliveau mainly cause I grew up watching Guy play and his shot on the fly down that right wing is a classic memory, one that he played over and over. He drank and smoked, and did not have to work the hardest out there, but the talent was fun to watch. He was a game breaker.

Robinson - Same era, but he was something to behold on the blueline. Long reach, made you pay in the corners and in front of the net, and a long stride that suddenly had him behind the opponent's net in no time. His offensive abilities made you pay the price in both ends of the rink. No defenceman since has been such a complete package.

Current:

Koivu - Here is a guy who has battled cancer, has come back and is an inspiration to other players through his quiet work ethic. Not one of those big cheerleader captains, but you know he just goes out there and works hard and leads by example.

Begin - An interesting pick given the other talented players we have, but here is a player whom both Calgary and Buffalo would likely want back in a second. A cast off by the age of 25, he has resurrected himself like the proverbial phoenix through hard work and great energy. He not only made the team after being an obscure waiver pick up, but was sorely missed during a mid-season injury. Here is a guy who face planted into the boards during the playoffs, lost about 250 teeth, got stitched up, and came back before the game was done. Most of us likely thought he was out for weeks. If he was bigger and had more skill, he would be a perennial all-star. Instead, he is an important part of the new Habs' "team" that is emerging.

Patrick Roy no doubt, and Kirk Muller, although i never seen Robinson play i hear stories that neither any of the big bad bruins or the broad street bullies would care to tangel with him. Anyone that tough, you gotta love em.

Right now, probably Ryder, what a story, and Komisarek he is my pick to be another Robinson, and Koivu, prolly the toughest Son'a'Biaoch there ever was in the NHL.

I don't even bother to list Koivu as my favourite, every one knows he's god... he's the best. So, Koivu aside...

Present
- Zednik
- Hainsey
- Ward

Also liked Dowd, Markov, Kovalev and Begin lots, only a couple I really don't like (and believe me, they are 'a couple' )

Past
- Recchi
- Rocket
- Muller
- Savage
- Harvey

EDIT: I forgot Rivet. I mean c'mon, he kicked the **** out of Marchment. That's awesome!
