The Montreal Canadiens are the oldest and one of the most successful teams in not only the history of the National Hockey League, but the entire sport of hockey. They are the only team in the modern National Hockey League to exist before the league was founded and formed. They have been around since 1909 and have won over twenty Stanley Cup trophies.
In fact they are one of the oldest franchises in the world of North American professional sports as they are older than 31 of the 32 National Football League teams, all of the National Basketball Association teams and every other Canadian pro sports franchise. They are also one of the founding members of the National Hockey League as well.
They are one of the most historic franchises as well as they have won more championships than every team except the New York Yankees, who play Major League Baseball. They hold the distinction of being the last Canadian team to win a Stanley Cup trophy back in 1992-93.
It would only take seven years for them to win their first trophy after being founded in 1909. As they lifted the Stanley Cup trophy for the first time during the 1915-16 season. However, that would be the only Stanley Cup they would win before joining the National Hockey League.
Their first official National Hockey League Stanley Cup was won during the 1923-24 season. Two years after that they would move into their new home for the next seventy years, as they would now play their home games at the Montreal Forum.
The 1930s started off great for the Habs as they would win the 1930-31, and 1931-32 Stanley Cup trophies as well. They would go on to enjoy decades of success throughout the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. They would win a total of 14 Stanley Cups and make several playoff appearances throughout the years.
They reached their peak in the 1970s when they won six of their 24 Stanley Cups in a ten year period. They were the most dominant team in all of the National Hockey League for the majority of its early existence.
Following the 1970s they would only manage to win two more Stanley Cups with the last one coming in the mid 90s, but they would make plenty of playoff appearances. In their entire history they have made dozens of playoff appearances, won 24 division titles and 8 conference championships as well.
It’s been a long thirty years since the last time the Montreal Canadiens were on top of the National Hockey League. However, they have made seventeen playoff appearances since then and even made it to one Stanley Cup Finals in 2020-21. They had a rough season as they finished the year with a record of 24-21-11, but they certainly made up for it in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with their finals run.
In 2021-22 they would end up being the worst team in the National Hockey League as they had a huge regression in a years span, when the league transitioned back to normal divisions. They finished with the worst record in the National Hockey League, as they ended up with a record of 22-49-11 and ended up with the number one pick in the 2022 National Hockey League draft.
If you are a fan of the Montreal Canadiens, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the Montreal Canadiens have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Stanley Cup in 2023?
Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Montreal Canadiens:
Martin St. Louis is the head coach of the Montreal Canadiens. After a legendary playing career that lasted 18 seasons, he will take his first head coaching job this season with the Canadiens. This will be his first career head coaching job at any professional level and his hiring has come with some backlash because of that.
He has been an assistant coach in Columbus and Montreal. Many believe that he will be able to bring the best out of young star Cole Caulfield, to whom he has drawn several comparisons too, during Caulfield’s short career.
Cole Caulfield is the top guy on this Montreal Canadiens roster heading into the 2022-23 National Hockey League season. He will enter his second full season in the National Hockey League this upcoming year. Last season he put up some impressive numbers as he found the net 23 times over the course of last year’s National Hockey League season.
He also had no problem passing off the puck and setting up his teammates to find the net as well, as he added 20 assists to his total. Overall, he finished with a total of 43 points in 67 games played. He emerged late last season as a top option for the Canadiens and as previously mentioned his improvement can be credited to the hiring of Martin St. Louis.
Nick Suzuki is yet another solid guy on this Montreal Canadiens roster heading into the 2022-23 National Hockey League season. He will enter his fourth season in the National Hockey League this upcoming year. Last season he put up some impressive numbers as he found the net 21 times over the course of last year’s National Hockey League season. He also had no problem passing off the puck and setting up his teammates to find the net as well, as he added 40 assists to his total.
Overall, he finished with a total of 61 points in 82 games played. Despite being drafted by the Vegas Golden Knights, he never took the ice in Vegas and spent his entire National Hockey League career with the Montreal Canadiens, as he has emerged as a top passer on the team. He is a one time all-star and a one time Molson award winner.
The Montreal Canadiens’ campaign during the 2021-22 National Hockey League season went about as you would’ve expected. They finished the year with a record of 22-49-11 and in last place of the Atlantic Division.
There is a lot of optimism surrounding the franchise heading into the 2022-23 National Hockey League season. If they want to improve or keep up their current level of play they will certainly need a ton of production from their stars over the course of the 2022-23 National Hockey League season. The most important thing in any season is how a team starts out of the gate, and then how they look when the all-star break approaches.
In the National Hockey League, a lot can change over a single off-season. It will be interesting to see how their offseason moves translate onto the ice over the course of the 2022-23 National Hockey League season.
They are set to play a full 82-game schedule for only the second time in the last four seasons thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on their odds to win some hardware headed into the season it is clear how the oddsmakers in Las Vegas feel about them heading into the year.
Their odds to bring home the Atlantic Division championship this season currently sit at +10000 heading into the 2022-23 National Hockey League season, which puts them in last in the Atlantic Division out of eight teams.
While their odds to win the Eastern Conference currently sit at +8000 heading into the 2022-23 National Hockey League season, which puts them last in the Eastern Conference out of 16 teams.
Their overall odds to bring home the Stanley Cup trophy are currently sitting at +15000 heading into the 2022-23 National Hockey League season, as they rank 27th out of all 32 teams in the National Hockey League.
