The captain is a position of great honor in the NHL, but that may be doubly true for the Montreal Canadiens . Wearing the C for the Habs comes with a lot of responsibility and the weight of not only an organization, but more than a century of its history.

On and off the ice in good seasons, bad stretches of team play, and when coaching came complete with three rings, a master of ceremonies and a big top, these two were a constant part of the equation on the positive side.
