The Montreal Canadiens are the oldest NHL team and the oldest hockey team to participate
in the league. They were formed in 1909 and have had an illustrious history ever since.
Success is something that Montreal Canadiens tickets holders are very familiar with. A
season that does not end with Stanley Cup success is thought of as a failure by Montreal
Canadiens tickets holders. These fans will fill arenas every week and cheer their team on to
The Montreal Canadiens tickets holders have had the pleasure of watching their team win
22 division titles and 24 Stanley Cups. A lot of these Stanley Cups came from 1915-1960,
however the team has managed to be consistently successful in almost every era. The most
recent success was in 1992-1993. The nine year wait for a Stanley Cup title is one of the
longest those Montreal Canadiens tickets holders have had to endure.
Up and down is a good way to describe the Montreal Canadiens the past five seasons. They
made the playoffs four times, losing twice in the QFs, once in the semis and once in the
finals to the Flyers. 2011-2012 was disappointing as the team did not manage to make the
playoffs. Fans will be hoping that 2012-2013 is a different story.
Great players and the Montreal Canadiens go hand in hand. There is no NHL player that
would not love to play for this team, as they are such a wonderful and exciting franchise to
be a part of. Gary Lafleur, Maurice Richard, and Jean Beliveau are some of the top goals and
assists scorers in Montreal Canadiens history.
The year 1996 proved to be the year that the Montreal Canadiens moved to the Bell Centre.
This is a stadium that cost $270 canadian dollars to build and it has been a resounding
success. The arena can hold 21,273 for every hockey game. That is a huge capacity for the
NHL, however Montreal Canadiens tickets are still sold out for most home games. There is a
waiting list for Montreal Canadiens tickets that are seasonal. This shows just how many want
to see the team live at every home game.
Fans of the Montreal Canadiens are some of the best in the NHL. The team has a famous
motto: "Nos bras meurtris vous tendent le flambeau, à vous toujours de le porter bien haut,"
in French, and it can be translated to, "To you from failing hands we throw the torch. Be
yours to hold it high." This motto is a symbol of how the fans feel about the team and how
the team appreciates Montreal Canadiens tickets holders.
Last season was not a good time for Montreal Canadiens tickets holders. They did not enjoy
being out of the playoff picture and having to watch other teams compete for the Stanley
Cup. Steps were taken to rectify this and there will be four new players on the Canadiens
roster for the 2012-2013 season. Fans will hope that these new players can push the current
ones and create the kind of quality and team spirit that will get the team all the way to the
Stanley Cup finals.
