Top moments/events/etc #9

Almost done here people, so bear with me

As it stands now, and will most likely stand in the 5 minutes until the last poll closes, the winner is 1960 - Habs win record 5th Cup in a row. Nice choice.

Standings now:
#1 2002 - Koivu Returns from Cancer
#2 1955 - Richard Riot
#3 1945 - Richard Scores 50 in 50
#4 1909 - Habs are Born
#5 1979 - Habs Win Cup, Cherry has too many Men
#6 1986 - Rookie Roy Leads Habs to Cup
#7 1977 - Habs cap off 60-8-12 season with Cup
#8 1960 - Habs win record 5th Cup in a row


This round, I'm adding:
1956 - Jean Beliveau Scores PP Hattrick in 45 seconds, forcing rule change in NHL

To be added:
1946 - Selke invents Farm System
2003 - Heritage Classic

Here's a link to info:

Agreed. And it's a fond memory for me as I was not yet born during the Habs glory days.

Still, I'm going to vote for Howie Morenz' death until it gets up there. It's just too huge.

I was wondering where your post went when I checked out the thread.

I voted for Richard getting all 3 stars in 1944.

Why?

The 1993 Cup was very special, don't get me wrong.
The two funerals were very moving.
The Red Army gave was incredible.

But no one ever had the honour; no one ever has had the honour of being named all 3 stars. I know, nowadays the honour of being named a star of the game is not the same as it used to be - but I find that incredible. Just reading about the event, and the Forum fans' reactions (3rd star: Maurice Richard - people outraged; 2nd star: Maurice Richard - people realize what's going on and star cheering wildly; 1st star: Maurice Richard - people go nuts)

Ah, to have witnessed that must have been a special memory for those lucky enough to have been there.

No doubt more memorable than Patrick Traverse being booed after being named third star

what rule change did Beliveau's hat trick in 45 seconds create? This sounds intriguing

I assume the minor penalty ends after a goal rule? Too long ago for me to really be sure though.

You are correct sir. The next season they changed the rule so that once a goal was scored, the 2 minute penalty ended.

I voted for Plante. That completely changed the face of hockey.

Apparently Plante got hit in the face by a little flip of the puck and not a huge slapshot that the "Canada historical moment" commercials make it out for me. One of his teamates (bare in mind I'm too lazy to get out one of my books and look it up) said something along the lines that Plante was the happiest person in the building when he got hit.

30 minutes left, then the final poll. So get your votes in, it's a close one.

I was unsure when I first started posting these polls so I did them for 2 days, but then I realized the poll is open for 24 hours until it closes. So if you choose 1 day on poll, it will close 24 hours from when you posted it.
