Choose who you would want on your top two scoring lines. What would be you checking/shutdown 3rd line and who would you have for your fourth line grinders. Also your pick for top starting goalie and best back-up.

and/or

What would your best Habs penalty killing & powerplay units be.

Awesome team! So many great players to choose from and each brings something different to the table. Maybe you can add Jacques Lemaire as a healthy scratch. :)

I will say the team that only lost 8 out of 80 games in the 76-77 season(correct that if wrong).

That was easily the best team in hockey history.For fun you could put Rocket Richard,Jean Beliveau,and Doug Harvey on that team with Roy as a back up.

Some may argue the Oilers of the 80s would have beat that Canadiens team I talked about but there is no way they had the defense or goaltending to stand a chance.If those teams met in a playoff series I would say the habs would win in 6 games and on home ice.

The Habs of the late 70s and Oilers of the 80s,hockeys 2 greatest teams IMO.the habs have the slight edge because they were the total package of offense,defense,and goaltending.The Oilers just had a hell of a lot of fire power.

Bottom line the 76-77 Montreal Canadiens are the best hockey team that ever played.Imagine what the cap would have been for that team today.

I had a double take there, on your typo for Laperriere. At first I thought you were saying Lapierre (as in Maxim). :lol:
