Henri Richard always realized how fortunate he was to be a member of the Montreal Canadiens. But, in one way anyways, playing with his famous brother actually may have hurt him some.
"That 1960 team was the best I ever played on. We had a well balanced team - Plante in goal, Doug Harvey and Tom Johnson on defense, Geoffrion, my brother, Beliveau, Backstrom. We won in eight straight games.
"Geoffrion, Beliveau, and Olmstead were the scoring line. I played on the third line with Moore and my brother. As the center I was looking a little too much for Maurice, too much. Now I am always still looking for someone and that's why they say I don't shoot enough. Maurice was 15 years older than me . . . he never told me anything, never helped me . . . I was just playing with him.
"When I see my name on the Cup, I think of all those great players I had with me. I wouldn't have m name there if I didn't have all those big stars that played with the Canadiens over these years. The first five years I was in the league, we won five Stanley Cups. Obviously, that's not a personal record, it's a team record, a team I was just lucky enough to be on."
