Show synopsis The beginning of the 2008/2009 NHL season marks a significant date in hockey history, for it celebrates the centenary of one of the leagues most storied franchises -- the Montreal Canadiens. Through their 100 years, the Montreal Canadiens have demonstrated their will to succeed by capturing more Stanley Cups (24) than any other team in hockey history. The Stanley Cup is the most recognized trophy in sports and the most coveted trophy in the hockey world. Montreal's ability to win as many times as their history shows would not have been possible without the contributions made by their many talented members, and this book is dedicated to them. The Montreal Canadiens have sent 62 players and builders on to the Hockey Hall of Fame. "Honoured Canadiens" profiles each and every one of the 62 inductees, providing riveting biographical information and spectacular photographs from the collections of the Hockey Hall of Fame itself. From early stars like Howie Morenz and Aurele Joliat to Original Six stars such as Maurice "Rocket" Richard and Jacques Plante, to modern legends including Guy Lafleur and Larry Robinson, "Honoured Canadiens" provides the complete roster of Canadiens' greats in detail never before experienced.
