That building in polished up tonight. Absolutely beautiful.

Watching with my wife and she goes "I don't think I've ever seen the glass where it was so perfect, I can barely see it."

I had a big grin for Scotty Bowman. Awesome.

Even the Anthems with the brass from the MSO sounded amazing.

I hate Montreal (My mother is from Boston, making NY and Montreal evil) and I was still enjoying this.

Well done Montreal.

It's like that all the time. Me and some friends take a trip up there every year, it is always immaculate. They definitely did that arena right.

If anyone is thinking of going, I highly suggest it. Montreal is my most favorite city that I have ever been to. Wish I went to school up there. :blush:

While I thought the ceremony dragged on for a bit, it was really good overall and showed the true history of hockey and that great franchise. I thought it was a little weird that they used that hare krishna song for the rememberence slideshow but... hey I'm not french-Canadian.

The game was a pretty good one as well, the habs played with a ton of energy and the crowd was really into it. Fun one to watch.

On a side note, I also enjoyed watching the hawks lose to Nashville.

Yea Its always great seeing a Wings jersey anywhere, especially something as big as this for another team. And from what I hear it was a great game, and what the scores says haha Montreal killed Thomas last night.

I thought it was cool to see Ken Dryden show off the old goaltending style of just kicking at the puck. How times have changed.

I scared my dog yelling at Wah and LePuke, but got teary-eyed seeing Gordie, especially when he held up the Pocket Rocket's sweater.

I missed the beginning of the broadcast, does anyone know if it's on the net somewhere? I checked YouTube, but couldn't find it. (At least, not yet.)

Thanks guys, and GO WINGS!

1) Mr. Richard is spinning in his grave.

2) Check again; lot's of video is there.

A tremendous ceremony; I expected nothing less and my expectations were met on every level. The retiring of the numbers of Mr. Lach and Mr. Bouchard was also a nice touch. The final banner, in honour of the 100th Anniversary, has the names of each player in their history.

Mr. Cusimano_Brothers

I said I couldn't find any "as of that time". And excuse me for using one of Mr. Richard's nicknames, I certainly didn't mean any offence by it.

Most of all, excuse me for asking fellow Red Wings fans for a bit of help (in finding the video). I can assure you it won't happen again, thanks to your rudeness.

And in case you were wondering, I've been a die hard Wings fan since 1958, my name is Elizabeth MacNaughton, and you, sir, can go piss up a rope.

You had the wrong Mr. Richard. And, thank you very much for the directions.
