…like a medieval knight (call Me Sir Shootsalot :) ) I have been crusading for Our Montreal Canadiens to retire Toe Blake’s number 6 …and add His banner in the rafters next to Our other former Greats …some of You may believe Toe was only a Great Coach, and as a Player, did not quite rate such an honor …and/or, do not want yet another low-number retired and unavailable to contemporary Players …maybe unaware Toe Blake also was a great hockey Player, won an NHL scoring championship, the Hart Trophy and a Lady Byng, led Our Habs in scoring in 6 seasons of His Hall Of Fame playing career …Hector ‘Toe’ Blake was an key component with The Rocket and Elmer Lach on ‘The Punch Line’, which was the most feared scoring line of it’s day …most younger Fans understandably remember Toe Blake mainly as the genius Coach of the Montreal Canadiens at the cusp of Our Golden Era …the Golden Era that most of Us, whether We know it or not, were inspired to follow Our Habs as if it was ‘a religion’ unto It’s own …Toe Blake’s name is on 11 rings of the Stanley Cup; …8 as Our Coach, …2 as a Player for the Montreal Canadiens …and one as a Montreal Maroon …Toe Blake was the ‘heart and soul’ motivator Whom inspired and ‘showed the way’ to Our great Players of the time, both as a Player and Captain, …and as Our Coach …His Legacy is greatly taken for granted, I strongly believe, by the fact that Toe Blake’s number 6 is not represented yet in the rafters of the Bell Centre …the totality of Toe Blake’s legacy, as a Player and Our Coach, to the History and exceptional success of the Montreal Canadiens becoming the most famous brand in the hockey world is way past the overdue stage …I request all Montreal Canadiens Fans to join with Ian Cobb and I to right a wrong …We would like to encourage all Montreal Canadiens Fans whom agree with the objective to make Their opinions known to Geoff Molson and Montreal Canadiens executive board, that a special game night to honor Toe Blake’s number 6 with a banner in the Bell Centre is long-overdue …if this is something You would like to make right as I and Ian do, I provide the following mail contacts to send Your requests to ‘Retire Number 6 !!!’ Geoff Molson: President and Owner Kevin Gilmore: Vice President of Operations Send your testimonial to: c/o The Montreal Canadiens 1909, avenue des Canadiens-de-Montréal Montreal, QC, CANADA H3C 5L2 …merci beaucoup :) _________________________________________________________ Michel F.Therrien ???: HIS' new Official Habs' Fan Theme Song; Morrissey/The Smiths ‘Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfkvPnjb9hs HIS' alternative HIO Official Theme Song: 'MTL Stand-up !': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hK0l0XEW3Dw HIS' Get It Up ! pre-game musical intro: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=R5mMRiiCwak&NR=1 _________________________________________________________ HIO's BC Odd Couple: UCe, the supercilious stickler; and HIS, the stubbornly relentless 'schismatist' :) _________________________________________________________ What I WANT ! is an aircraft carrier at centre and nuclear destroyers on each wing going to the net like bats out of Hell !, ...NO MORE rubber duckies !!! _________________________________________________________ Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY http://www.nationalpost.com/news/story.html?id=423049 Campaign to Retire Toe Blake's Number 6 !!!
