    Montreal Canadiens History

    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.

    Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Montreal Canadiens.

    Preview on the Montreal Canadiens’ Head Coach: Dominique Ducharme

    After multiple years coaching at the junior hockey ranks, he got his first NHL job during the 2020-21 season. That opportunity led to the Montreal Canadiens being the first Canadian team to play in the Stanley Cup Finals in 10 years. They were also the last team north of the border to win a title in 1993. Ducharme has shown glimpses of being the guy that can finally bring Lord Stanley back to Canadian soil.

    Preview on the Montreal Canadiens’ Key Player: Tyler Toffoli

    Drafted by the Los Angeles Kings back in 2011 Toffoli has turned into a decent Goal scoring option. Although this will be his first full season in Montreal he is expected to be a contributing piece. Last year’s COVID shortened season saw him score 33 total goals and Assisted on 25 more. If the Canadiens want to return to the Stanley Cup Finals the play of Toffoli will be vital and reflective of team success.

    Preview on the Montreal Canadiens’ Next Best: Cole Caufield

    After a stellar career at the University Of Wisconsin, Caufield is expected to have a strong rookie campaign in 2021. He flashed signs of greatness in the playoffs finishing with 4 Goals and 8 Assists. Regarded by many as an absolute draft steal for Montreal, Caufield may just be the future of the Canadiens franchise. Despite his small stature, with him only standing at 5 foot 7 inches tall, he is out to prove the doubters wrong.

    Montreal Canadiens Betting & Odds Preview 2022-23

    The 2021-22 season is over and we take a look back at the Montreal Canadiens betting history for the most recent season. We will provide more information in relation to the new 2022-23 season once information becomes available. In the meantime, have a look at the betting and odds information for the Canadiens before the start of the previous season:

    The Montreal Canadiens are looking to make another big leap after making the Stanley Cup Finals last season. They will certainly have to play better in the regular season after their losing regular season where they finished eight games below .500 and with only 24 wins in a shortened season. 

    Apparently bettors are not putting their trust in the Montreal Canadiens either as many people are thinking last season was a fluke because they have the lowest odds to win the Stanley Cup Finals this season. Their odds currently sit at (+10000) heading into the 2021-22 National Hockey League season. 

    However, It is hard to rule them out already as they are the most historic franchise in the history of the National Hockey League and always have an outside shot at making a run. Nobody could have expected them to make the Stanley Cup Finals last season and they did. 

    However, with divisions returning to normal this season as well as the return of an 82 game schedule and travel, it is easy to see why people are doubting them at the moment. It will be interesting to see what kind of season they will have during the 2021-22 season as they look to build off of last year’s performance.
