Those Who Would, And Wouldn’t, Look Good In A Montreal Canadien Sweater
January 27, 2008 in 1972 Canada-Russia hockey, Montreal Canadiens, Vancouver Canucks Tags: Bobby Orr, Daniel Briere, Gilbert Perreault, Jarkko Ruutu, Jean Ratelle, Marcel Dionne, Matthew Barnaby, Mike Milbury, Pamela Anderson, Sean Avery, Sidney Crosby, Steve Downie, Todd Bertuzzi, Trevor Linden, Valeri Kharlamov, Vincent Lecavalier, Vladislav Tretiak
Daniel Briere: This is a guy who wants to collect his millions the easy way, in relative obscurity, so when he has a bad game no one notices. This is not a Montreal Canadien. I feel he’s a little shy in the cahoonie department.
Trevor Linden: He tried it, but was a bum there. Wearing the Habs jersey must have interfered with his wet dreams about the wet coast.
Sean Avery: If Avery ever becomes a Canadien, I’m taking up cricket. GO PAKISTAN!
Todd Bertuzzi: I shouldn’t have brought this up. Now I’m going to have nightmares all night.
Steve Downie: Players who try to injure other players is certainly no Montreal Canadien.
He belongs in Philadelphia.
Mike Milbury: There’s nothing like a supreme smart-ass to play in Boston and not Montreal.
Matthew Barnaby: Such a mediocre talent. And he’d have that smile on his face after he’d get his head kicked in. Sean Avery, Jarkko Ruutu, and Steve Downey learned their smile from this guy. I shudder just thinking about him in a Habs jersey.
Bobby Orr: Yep.
Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux: Yep.
Gilbert Perreault: This is a guy who should’ve played in Montreal. Talk about a Flying Frenchman. However, he did bail out on Team Canada in 1972, so that’s a big strike against him.
Vincent Lecavalier: Big strong French-Canadian centreman like Jean Beliveau. His grandfather would’ve been so proud to see him in a Habs jersey.
Sidney Crosby: If he had had a say in it, he’d be wearing the red, white, and blue right now.
Jean Ratelle: Another tall, strong French-Canadian centreman. Geez, was he ever out of place in Boston.
Marcel Dionne: It basically came down to Lafleur or Dionne, as Montreal couldn’t grab both. I’m glad it was Lafleur, but Dionne would’ve looked good in the jersey also.
Valeri Kharlamov: The great Russian was at the mercy of political bullshit in Moscow and there’s no way he would ever have been released to play in North America. He would’ve looked fantastic in Habs colours, though.
Vladislav Tretiak: He didn’t hide the fact he would have loved to play in Montreal, but the same applied to him as did Kharlamov. Anyway, Montreal had Dryden.
Pamela Anderson: With or without the sweater.
Dennis Kane: If only he was taller, faster, stronger, smarter, with a better shot, and was a better fighter and skater, he would’ve looked FANTASTIC in a Montreal Canadien sweater.
