1. Question from Danielle Lessard, via Facebook.

"What are your top three moments with the Canadiens?"

If I had to pick, my top three moments would be the Stanley Cup in 1993, the closing of the Forum and opening of the Bell Centre - I count that as one - and the Centennial celebrations, that was also great.

2. Question from Jean-Michael Fortin, via Facebook.

"I'd like to know which player is most demanding in the way he sharpens his skates."

Torrey Mitchell is very demanding with his skates. He gets thrown off easily. He always wants to make sure that everything is right and if he's not sure, it's tougher.

3. Question from teems.zoro, via Twitter.

"Who has the most pre-game rituals on the team?"

Alex Galchenyuk. His ritual ends something like five minutes before getting on the ice for warmups. It's really nuts. He comes in and gets dressed super fast. He does all kinds of things, stretches, running, he plays with the ball. He does lots of his own little things, with his hoodie on, music in his ears and he does his thing. It lasts around 20-25 minutes.
