Hi I am Mondouman.

I am still sad to this day about the shortened career of Pierre Mondou.

I loved to watch him play here in Halifax with the Voyageur.

So difficult to choose an alltime favorite player, Cournoyer, Robinson, Flower, Carbo, Gainey, the list would go on forever.

My oldest sister was in love with "Les Gros Bill" and she is the reason I became a habs fan in the late 60's.

I could go on and on but this is ans intro.

I don't know why it took me so long to join this forum but here I am at last.

Yay we can never have enough Hab fans. Welcome :).

Welcome to the forum mondouman, Pierre was one of my favourite players.

What do you remember about the tragic high sticking incident that ended Mondou's career?

It was against Harford right? Also I seem to remember it being Lee Norwood's stick, but on wikipedia it says

Ulf Samuellson.

Great story schapu. Can i ask about the meaning behind your name??

Welcome to the forum. :)

thx for the warm welcome. the story behind the name is actually a bit complicated. as i did some capoeira back in high school i wanted to go with capoeiro, but as the nick was already taken, i changed it to capueiro (as the portugese pronounce the o as an u). some ten years ago or so a friend of mine was a bit drunk and could only go with schapu... et voilà :)

So, if you fancy a pint and a chat, let me know...

Wow what a game to have as your first. I can only imagine how you must have felt coming back from that. I sure know I will never forget that game....I'm still in disbelief.

Greets to all Habs fan,

AtwaterForum_zps220a041c.jpg

Here's a little bit about my Habs fan history, when I was a kid my Dad used to take me to see the Habs play at the Atwater Forum. Those awesome memories and that picture are engraved in my mind forever!

I got to see Dryden, Robinson, Lapointe, Bouchard etc... and to top it off with Scotty Bowman as head coach, what more could one ask for? Habs were Stanley Cup Winners and in those days we had muscle cars and the music was much better (just sayin').

Nowadays, things look good with Marc Bergevin, Michel Therien, the crew and the Team. Add to this a playoff spot with the series just around the corner, hopefully we can go as far as possible this year.

With that said, nice to talk with you all in the forums.

Them were the days hatethoseleafs :)

Yup. As far as i know,,,the only player to ever win the playoff MVP award in his debut, and then the rookie of the year the next season. He was just amazing during that playoff run. Like it was yesterday. :)

Interesting little fact from a Dave Stubbs tweet:

This day in 1979, Ken Dryden becomes 1st NHL goalie to win 30 or more games in each of his first 7 seasons

Your avatar brings back some sweet memories for me. Of course whenever it was my turn to play goal, when I was younger, I would always imitate him when the puck was at the other end of the rink.

The impact he's had is awesome. I'm 20, so Dryden was retired long before I was born. But you know what? Me and all my friends imitated him still.

Yep, that famous stance he was well known for! :)

Indeed!

Agreed with you powerplay2009, I did that also when it was my turn to play in nets back in the day just like Habs-Rule-Forever. Amazing how he has influenced generations of Hockey players and fans alike.
