Day 147 - Bronze Dreams
In Montreal for a few days. Since the hotel is only a few blocks from the Bell Centre I took the opportunity to go check it out. For their 100th anniversary last year they built a commemorative park with decorative bricks on a walkway, jersey plaques with documented information and of course the bronze statues. Some of their greatest players have been bronzed; Guy Lafleur, Maurice 'Rocket' Richard, Jean Belliveau. There may be others but these are the 3 I saw. I chose this pic as it doesn't single out any one player but symbolizes all players, old and young, and their dreams of playing in the NHL.
