No NHL team is better at their honoring former stars than the Montreal Canadiens. That's a good thing considering they have more former stars than most teams combined.
If there is one ceremony that sticks out more than others it definitely would be the night in 1984 when "The Mighty Atom" Aurele Joliat returned to the Montreal Forum.
Joliat was a spectacular player in his day back in the 1920s and 1930s. Even though he was awarded the 1934 Hart Trophy, the three time Stanley Cup champion was always in the shadow of Howie Morenz. Here's a few clips of Joliat recalling the great "Stratford Streak."
