Among the 30-plus head coaches who have worked behind the Canadiens’ bench during the past century, none approaches those who joined the franchise’s Builders Row last night at the Bell Centre. Not even close.
It starts with the numbers for Dick Irvin Sr., Toe Blake and Scotty Bowman, who won a combined 16 Stanley Cups during the 36 seasons they wore the CH on their hearts. I’m talking about coaches who posted a 1,350-678-416 record in 2,444 regular-season games. It’s about their dedication to winning. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, it’s in the admiration they earned for winning as often as they did.
