A legend in Habs history.

Something I will never forget about Ryan O'Byrne (exept the own goal and the purse incident ;) ) :

Classy move by O'Byrne...

One of the past greats..Paving the road for the future of the NHL...Too bad a business man like Bettman got a hold of it, eh?

"Butch" will be missed..RIP..

Another Ghost added to the team to add to the opposition's misery..

FORMER CANADIENS CAPTAIN BOUCHARD REMEMBERED BY GREATS

Montreal native and current Canadiens winger Mathieu Darche was too young to have watched Bouchard, but said he heard stories from his parents and grandparents.
