Montreal Canadiens 100 Seasons series homepage.

Note for all readers and Canadiens Fans:

The Montreal Canadiens 100 Seasons has been all consuming project for me to undertake starting this past summer. I hope that you will enjoy reading it as much as I have had digging it up. I always thought that there should be one single place online, almost like a web book, where much of this could be found. Now, hopefully, I can make that a reality.

As of July 31, 2008, I had completed documenting roughly about half of the team's history. As I continue to write and research these pieces, I will begin posting on a bi-weekly schedule, while continuing to post the Habs current going's since training camp's beginning.

In order to allow readers to bookmark this series in an easier manner than searching through scattered posts, this page can serve as a one stop link up for checking in on new entries. Most recent entries are at the top
