Would it be wrong to suggest that the twelve best hockey players to come out of Quebec are, in no particular order, Maurice Richard, Jean Beliveau, Mike Bossy, Patrick Roy, Doug Harvey, Henri Richard, Jacques Plante, Guy Lafleur, Ray Bourque, Marcel Dionne, Mario Lemieux…..

 And of course, Gaston LeBois?

  1. I have a hard time including Gaston with the others. Although he’s frequently mentioned everywhere I go, its always about much he’s despised. It may not be seem fair but that mouth of his will keep him off any such “best” list.

  2. Yeah but Eddie Shore and Ty Cobb were despised too and they made it to their Halls of Fame.

  3. good list Dennis. One question though……are those shit stains on the patrick roy jersey you have pictured? I have another twelve to add if anybody cares

    Yvon Cournoyer
    Gil Perreault
    Michel Goulet
    Dave Keon
    Dickie Moore
    Bernie Parent
    Boom Boom Geoffrion
    Denis Savard
    Georges Vezina
    Joe Malone
    Martin Brodeur
    Luc Robitaille

  4. DK : Roy’s name should never ever be mentioned again !!!!!!!!!!!
    From the East Cheers !

  5. What about Denis Potvin? He broke Orr’s scoring records, he was a ferocious checker who laid people out on the ice, he won the Calder and multiple Norris trophies, and lest we forget, he joined a team that was one of the worst in league history and led it to four Cups and nineteen consecutive playoff series wins.

  6. Potvin was born in Ottawa, lived in Ottawa, and played for the Ottawa 67’s before going to the Islanders. So he’s not from Quebec. He was a great player, though, and if he was a Quebecer, he’d be on the list for sure.
