got em all....what a set of hockey players
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 17:18 GMT
This is a list of great great players, and it's even missing many greats such as Vezina, Hainsworth, Shutt, Lemaire Laperriere, Worsley, Joliat ... and many other hall-of-famers
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 17:21 GMT
So, if they continue to retire numbers at the rate of two a year and have a squad of 26, they're going to need three-digit player numbers by 2029...
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 17:31 GMT
No worries there, davidr. Pretty much every Hab from the last 10-12 years or so has been mediocre at best.
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 17:40 GMT
I'm not going to complain about how many hockey quizzes there are, because plenty of people like hockey, even if I don't, and because the NFL/NBA/MLB have just as many (if not more) quizzes devoted to them. But you know what I'd really like to see? A quiz regarding my favorite associated-with-Canada sport, curling. I can't imagine what it would be (Olympic gold medalists? there have only been four men's and three women's competitions), but after soccer and American football, curling is my favorite sport, so how about some love? ...No? No love? Well, at least I tried.
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 18:30 GMT
@kicking222: Nine countries have won curling medals at the Winter Olympics; six in the men's World Championships and eight in the women's. Any of those lists would make an OK quiz. I wouldn't go so far as to give curling love but it's great fun to watch once every four years at the Winter Olympics.
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 18:30 GMT
Since I only got five, it's obvious I'm not a big hockey fan, nor by extension a big Canadiens fan, but seriously, I missed Patrick Roy?
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 18:48 GMT
I'd like to see more Olympic quizzes in general.
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 18:55 GMT
Then hook me up, David! You're a great quiz creator, so create the quiz! (Here is where I stereotypically say, "Or, alternatively, get the Sporcle gods to give me quiz-making rights, as I have craved for so very long.)
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 19:01 GMT
You could just about field a full NHL team with all these retired numbers...it would be a great one too.
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 19:20 GMT
@Freekbot: But would you start Plante or Roy? ;)
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 19:38 GMT
yaaaaaaay. our team. who is sucking right now. boo lol.
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 19:39 GMT
@kicking222: Done! (Olympic curling medals. If that turns out to be unexpectedly popular, I'll send in the world championships, too.)
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 21:15 GMT
For some reason I am perennially convinced that #1's last name has "La" at the beginning of it. I always miss him on these quizzes because of it. You'd think I'd learn. ... This is quite an awesome lineup. Now I want similar quizzes for my two favorite teams: Red Wings and Bruins, anyone?
Mar 24th, 2009 at 00:04 GMT
That's actually funny John. Roy was the only answer I got.
Mar 24th, 2009 at 01:14 GMT
Hockey quizes are great...now how about a little frozen four action?!
Mar 24th, 2009 at 02:23 GMT
Roy and done. But at least I've heard of Savard. My only knowledge of the NHL comes from 1 Chicago Blackhawks game and playing NHL '96 and NHL 2000 for a month or two each. Needless to say not very helpful
Mar 24th, 2009 at 03:26 GMT
@Cuthbert: If you are forced to send Dryden down to the minors, it probably doesn't matter which one ends up starting! What a legacy.
Mar 24th, 2009 at 23:14 GMT
Gretzky's #99 was retired by all teams, which includes the Habs, so 99 should also be on there.
Mar 25th, 2009 at 20:56 GMT
can't believe I missed #12. I had such a crush on him...I was a baby at the time...
Mar 30th, 2009 at 05:30 GMT
at Shel: the Red Wings have not retired enough numbers to justify a quiz. the Bruins are a maybe. the New York Football Giants have retired enough numbers IMO
Apr 15th, 2009 at 04:42 GMT
@ dirty kash: so you're going to tell me Markov and Kovalev are mediocre at best. Maybe not super stars but you clearly don't know hockey.
Apr 16th, 2009 at 05:29 GMT
@Rom: actually Rom by trying to be clever and find a stupid loop hole you actually look dumb because you are wrong. Gretzky's 99 was not retired by every team it was retired by the oilers, the kings and by the NHL as a league. It not at all the same as having his # retires by every team because he did not play for every team. It is just a way to honor a great player by not allowing anyone else to wear his #. Personally i think it's ridiculous that if they did it for Gretzky they did not do it for players like orr, lemieux, harvey, etc. so anyways Rom don't talk if you don't know the subject well enough to comment.
Apr 28th, 2009 at 07:11 GMT
@josh: pretty harsh. yes, the league, not techhnically the habs themselves, retired Gretzky's number, no Canadien can wear that number, so it does merit a bonus answer, and I'm not sure he was trying to sound clever and find a loop hole, I think he was just saying he thought gretzky should be there. I think how the league handled it is ludicrous though, as well. I mean, where do you draw the line? Why not Bossy, or Howe? Do they do it for Brodeur when he retires? And finally, yes, i will agree with you about the players. Markov, Kovalev, Koivu, and a lot of young talent have inhabited the team. They've had a better roster consistently then maybe a third of the league, and to call them mediocre is just ignorant
May 11th, 2009 at 03:34 GMT
@peter: ya i guess it was kind of harsh. My apologies, I know when I'm wrong. I still don't think Gretzky should be an answer though, maybe a bonus.
Dec 5th, 2009 at 16:53 GMT
lach and bouchard had their numbers retired yesterday.
Apr 14th, 2010 at 15:52 GMT
Bof! The only one I missed was Geoffrion and that's because I couldn't remember how to spell it...

Doesn't Sporcle only allow quizzes on teams who are relevant?
Dec 27th, 2012 at 20:30 GMT
Surprised Jacques Lemaire is not on the list.
