The Montreal Canadians moved out of the Old Forum on St-Catherine street, corner Atwater, back in the 90's. Ever since then they've not won a stanley cup...coincidence? I think not.
The old Forum could seat about 17,000 people so they built a new arena to seat 21,000 - while the Bell Center is sold out every game the team itself has sucked the massive goat wangs ever since they moved to the Forum (and Patrick Roy leaving the team didn't help either).
The old Forum is now a....mall....gah...the balls these people have to desecrate a shrine like the Forum. It also has a movie theatre in it with 23 screens in it, which ironically enough is the mount of stanley cups won in that building. Gah. Pisses me off.
So if you are a hockey fan, and want to pay tribute to one of the legendary rinks of the sport, then be prepared to see a mall. Bah.
The Montreal Canadiens are the most storied hockey team in the NHL. With 24 stanley cups to their credit, the mystique that surrounds this team is infectious.
If you are in town during October-March, pop by the Bell Center and go see a game. Cheap seats are about $50. But its a great stadium and there are no real lousy seats
Equipment: Nothing special. Montreal is cold in the winter, so whatever you where to the game will be plenty
The Bell Centre, where the Montreal Canadiens play, is centrally located and easy to reach while you are in the city. The hockey's always great and the fans are just as passionate about the game as the players.
In Montreal, the Montreal Canadiens goaltender is most important than the Prime Minister or the biggest star in the world. The hockey is a religion. When the team lost more than two games in a week, all the city is angry. It's really a unique ambiance!! The Montreal Canadiens plays at Centre Bell, the second cathedral!
This is hockey 'like in the good old days!' about 5 fights a game and high scores makes these games very popular! Come in early because it's first come, first serve! And when I say popular, i mean popular!! One of the most exiting team is the Laval Chiefs, named after the Chiefs in cult hockey movie : 'Slapshot'
ONE LITTLE WARNING: These guys play a rough game and the crowd can get a bit exited..I wouldn't bring my kids here..
This is the MOST PRESTIGIOUS team in hockey and the team with THE MOST SEASONS CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE WORLD (all sports included, tied with the NY Yankees)
Great fun and lot's of action!
(Don't forget the souvenir shop!!)
Home of the Montreal Canadiens which is a National Hockey League team. Some of the finnest hockey in the world. Don't miss out on seeing such a great event!!!
Equipment: Don't forget your Canadiens shirt!
You can catch a Montreal Canadians game at the fairly new Centre Molson in downtown. This arena opened in 1996 and reflects the excellence of the most successful franchise in NHL history.
