With 44 Hall of Fame members and 24 Stanley Cup championships, the Montreal Canadiens are firmly established as the most storied franchise in hockey history.

The 2008-09 season marks the 100th Anniversary of the Canadiens, and the NHL is honoring Montreal all season long.

The Canadiens will host the All-Star Game in January, as well as the NHL Entry Draft in June.

McFarlane's Sports Picks are recognizing the Centennial celebration by offering five 2-packs featuring the very best current and retired Canadiens players.

Due: February 2009

ALEX KOVALEV

Alex Kovalev began his professional hockey career when he was drafted by the New York Rangers in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft.

He has endorsed Warrior Hockey sticks since 2006, impressed by their custom designs and fresh approach.

His reputation got off to a great start in the 1994 Stanley cup, and he was one of the first Russian players to have their name on the cup: A big achievement at that point.

He played for his home city (Lada Togliatti) during the 1994-1995 NHL lockouts and scored 8 goals in 12 games, with the same number of assists as well.

Kovalev's best time was inarguably after he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins in late 1998 when he consistently gained points for his new team and in two consecutive seasons he gained 76 and 95 points, good going for a player who some critics felt lacked refinement. He inspired many fans during this time, and became a popular player.

In the 2004 NHL Entry Draft After he was traded to the Montreal Canadiens. During his first 12 games he notched up an unimpressive 3 points until he found his feet and settled into his new teams style… scoring 6 goals and 10 points in 11 games and he began exhibiting a new focus which delighted fans and team-mates.

It was in this season that his most memorable hockey moment occurred, a moment which gained such fame (or infamy) throughout the hockey world that it has sealed him into the memory of all fans, by elbowing Darcy Tucker, a player of the Maple Leafs, in the face.

Canadiens fans were enthralled by the scene of Kovalev damaging the player of their arch-rival team. (T-Shirts are available picturing the moment of contact!)

But his most controversial moment was when he was accused of criticizing his team-mates, coach and the media in an interview he gave to the Russian media in Russian, which he vehemently denies and has never been proved.

In 2008 Kovalev appears to be making a comeback. His goal scoring has improved (34 goals, 48 assists for 80 points in just 78 games) and if he continues to play well he may well find that he will be able to rise up further and dispel the criticisms which have dogged his career.

SAKU KOIVU

Saku Koivu, the Finnish-born hockey pro, is a prime example of the hard-as-nails mentality and physical prowess displayed by hockey legends born of snow-laced ground.

Saku Antero Koivu was born November 23, 1974 in Turku, Finland. In 1992, Koivu began his professional ice hockey career with TPS (a hockey team) in the Finnish SM-liiga (the nation's well-known league).

Due to his high-intensity, skillful play on the ice, Koivu was drafted by the Canadiens in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft - 21st overall - and subsequently moved to North America in 1995 to begin playing.

Koivu quickly proved that his talent for hockey could shine amidst equally impressive aptitude in the NHL. Koivu's next few years were as solid as any in hockey, and he was named Captain of the Canadiens in 1999, the first-ever Euro-born team Captain.

Due to his courage, Koivu was awarded the Bill Masterson Memorial Trophy.

The NHL, never a stable league to begin with, experienced a lockout during the 05-06 season, and Koivu returned to his TPS roots along with his teammate Craig Rivet.

Koivu returned to the Canadiens for the 06 season and scored his 500th career NHL point against the Atlanta Thrashers. This would be his best season to date, and Koivu was even given the King Clancy Trophy for his prominent role in cancer-fighting, via the Saku Koivu Foundation.

Koivu continues to play professional hockey for the Montreal Canadiens, and during the 2008 season scored his 600th career point.
