When people ask about the dynasties in sport, the Montreal Canadiens come immediately to mind, for not even baseball's New York Yankees can math the success of hockey's "HABS".
The records speak for themselves:
Most Stanley Cup Championships:
Montreal Canadiens - 23
Most Final Round Appearances:
Montreal Canadiens - 27
Most Years in Playoffs:
Montreal Canadiens - 56
Most Consecutive Stanley Cup Championships:
Montreal Canadiens - 5
Most Consecutive Playoff Appearances:
Montreal Canadiens - 21
In LIONS IN WINTER, meet the superstars who helped the Canadiens to countless first place finishes and championships throughout the franchise's 76-year history - and the crafty coaches an general managers who guided them to the top year after year.  Great hockey strategists including Frank Selke, Dick Irvin, Toe Blake, Scotty Bowman, and Sam Pollock are remembered and interviewed where possible.  And, of course, you will meet the "Flying Frenchmen" themselves - legends like Howie Morenz, Maurice and Henri Richard, Jean Beliveau, Larry Robinson, Ken Dryden, Guy LaFleur, and many, many more.
LIONS IN WINTER is more than a history of this extraordinary franchise.  It is a fascinating look at the heart of the club - an examination of who and what have made that heart pump so strongly for more than three-quarters of a century.
