Kukla's Korner Hockey

100 Years Of Hockey In Montreal

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

This is where the ghosts and the flesh and blood collide.

With the air around the Bell Centre thick with the history of a glorious past, the Montreal Canadiens prepared to kick off their 100th season with their first home game of the season Wednesday night.

No matter where players on the current roster turn, whether it’s to look at the two dozen Stanley Cup banners dangling from the Bell Centre rafters or the ring of honor or even in the stands where former players like Steve Shutt were on hand to watch their morning skate, the current roster is reminded of the significant burden of the past in this hockey-crazed province.
