I think they should raise the banners at the Bell Center for those two Montreal Maroon Stanley Cup Wins...... If indeed they are already there.... I myself have never actually looked..... but if so happen they are, then more reason to count them towords the Canadiens Cup wins :D

Are you basing your logic on the fact that the Maroons team was from Montreal? If that indeed is what your saying then you would also have to consider all the other Montreal teams that won Cups.

The Montreal AAA, the Wanderers, the Victorias and the Shamrocks all have won Cups.

Exactly...like if the Islanders go under, are the Rangers going to take credit for the Islanders cup victories?

Based on after the NHL assumed control of Stanley Cup in 1926.

Before the NHL assumed control of the cup, there where many years where two teams where champs....

1893 Montreal AAA (no challengers)

1894 Montreal AAA Ottawa Generals

1895 Montreal Victorias (no challengers)

1896 Montreal Victorias & Winnipeg Victorias

1897 Montreal Victorias

1898 Montreal Victorias

1899 Montreal Shamrocks & Montreal Victorias

1900 Montreal Shamrocks

1902 Montreal AAA & Winnipeg Victorias

1903 Ottawa Silver Seven & Montreal AAA

1906 Montreal Wanderers & Ottawa Silver Seven

1907 Montreal Wanderers & Kenora Thistles

1908 Montreal Wanderers

1910 Montreal Wanderers & Ottawa Senators

1916 Montreal Canadiens

1924 Montreal Canadiens

1926 Montreal Maroons

Like in 1899 Montreal Shamrocks & Montreal Victorias both won the cup....... how two teams can win is beyond me.... so back before the NHL days there was no real system for wining it, so I didn't include them. :D

You couldn't possibly be seriously thinking that a cup win by a club that the Canadiens actually played against should count as a win for the Habs?Just because they happened to be from the same city?Give your head a shake!Using that logic(or lack of),the Ottawa Senators should lay claim to the cup wins by the Ottawa Silver Sevens,a team that the Senators had absolutely nothing to do with other than hailing from the same city!

Raising the banners is fine, but counting them as our cup wins, just because they are from Montreal is pointless.

I agree. The Maroons are a completely different team. This topic makes no sence whatsoever...

No, I wouldn't. Two different franchises, two different groups of cup victories.

For them to be honored in the Bell Centre, though, I don't mind ;)

Totally different teams, different organizations. The Mets and Yankees don't share World Series, neither do the Cubs and White Sox. Same difference.

First of all we don't need a couple of charity cups or gimmes. Secondly, the Maroons were the English speaking team across town back in the day. The Canadiens were started to give Francophones a team of their own.

The reson for the Cup being awarded twice in one year was because,,, unlike today's playoff series, the champion of the Cup was open for "challenges". This was where any team could challenge the Cup holder to a series in an attempt to win the Cup. This sometimes made for more than one Cup holder in any one year.

i agree with everyone who aid no since they were two seperate teams and infact they were suppose to have a huge rivalry but i wouldnt hate it if the habs honoured the teams with a banner but you cant count them as Montreal Canadiens cups

I wonder if anyone who played on the Maroons is still alive today. The team did stop playing back in 1938, after all.

I think he is.

There is a list of former players here, although it is difficult to say if they are completely up to date. Some of the players that are (presumably) surviving would be quite old today.

It might be a nice touch if the Habs raised one "City of Montreal" banner depicting all the other Montreal teams that have won a Cup. It would be a nice piece of history on display for all fans. I beleive ( without actually looking it up) there would be about another 15 or so Cups on such a banner.

Love it!

They did raise a banner celebrating the Expos being in Montreal, why not celebrate the other Montreal hockey team's Cup victories? That would be a great idea for the Habs 100th Anniversary. And it would not steal any thunder from the Habs birthday, either. This could enhance it by being a celebration of Montreal hockey.

Here is why:

Montreal Maroons dark logoThe Maroons joined the league in 1924 along with the Boston Bruins, the first American team. The expansion fees for both teams were $15,000, with $11,000 of the Maroons fee going to their cross town rivals, the Canadiens. At that time, the Maroons were one of two Montreal teams in the league. While the Montreal Canadiens drew primarily Francophone fans, the Maroons largely drew fans from the Anglophone neighbourhoods of Montreal. The defunct Montreal Wanderers had been targeted as a team for Anglophone fans before they folded just six games into their inaugural season

Different organization same city, you would not want The Rangers to claim the Islander and Jersey cups would you?
