Montreal Canadiens

Montreal to host outdoor game in 2009?

From Sean Leahy of Yahoo! Sports:

If you’ve never been to or seen Montreal’s Olympic Stadium, it sort of resembles either that of a spaceship or an odd-looking frying pan. Nevertheless, later this month, the Canadiens will announce their schedule of festivities celebrating their 100th season in hockey. According to CKAC Sports, the Habs will play a game in front of 70,000-plus at Stade Olympique next December 4, 2009, exactly one-hundred years after the team was founded by J. Ambrose O’Brien as charter members of the National Hockey Association.

The CKAC report also states that once the Grey Cupends in November, work will begin on the tower, sound system and roof of Olympic Stadium, with the likelihood that a Canadiens game would be played there without a roof.

Montreal is planning some big events for their 100th anniversary so it would be great to see the team play an outdoor game.  The Canadiens are a draw against anyone they play, so the game would be a television success regardless.
