  1. On Tva tonight Jean-Paul Chartrand said that the talk is that Geoffrion and Cournoyer were 2 of them, he did not name the 3rd one. As someone mentionned some time back, and I think it made a lot of sense, Gainey is a humble and somewhat shy guy, it would be very unlikely, that he would accept such an honour while he is GM of the Montreal Canadiens. I would hope that the 3rd guy would be Toe Blake, but poor old Toe was forgotten well into Alzheimer's disease, he died in poverty, a shame......then my vote would go to Larry Robinson.
  2. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: what about Toe guys?..... still can't believe he's been left out after all those years......... :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
  3. I'd love to see #6 retired, not only was Toe Blake a great player, captain, but he was one of the best coaches that the Habs ever had... #12 for Yvan Cournoyer #19 for Larry Robinson #23 for Bob Gainey #33 for Patrick Roy But as someone pointed out on the French Thread, it would be surprising if Gainey while GM would accept to have his number retired.
