In order to counter this onslaught of inaccurate marginalization, I present to you the next edition of the Habs Quiz: FEATS OF FUTILITY! You will actually get more bang for your buck in this week’s edition as I have devised numerous quizzes that cast a spotlight of shame on certain player personnel of the past.

In their place were born four new divisions, initially numbered sequentially from Division 1 to Division 4 upon their announcement on August 28th, 1973. Division 1 would be the New York Rangers,
