Maple Leafs Can Learn From Habs

You watch the video and it’s hard not to be envious of our neighbors to the east. Say whatever you want about the Montreal Canadiens, but they are one classy organization. No one recognizes their veteran superstars like they do. I watched the pre-game ceremony and re-saw it on TSN about 15 times and was just in awe. To have all their great superstar lace em up, put on the jerseys for a photo was pure gold!

This isn’t a knock on MLSE, rather a plea, to consult the Canadiens play book before the next session where we honor more Maple Leafs. The Habs just flat out do it well.

    I’ve spent most of my life hating the Habs. But I couldn’t help but get goosebumps….That was unreal…good for the Canadiens for getting it right.

    Mostly classy but 1) was very similar to other ceremonies, just more so and 2) Viggo Mortenson??!! Jersey retirement of the two oldest Habs was great ( even if 16 had already been retired once)
