Following the now infamous hockey brawl involving his son, Jonathan Roy, should the Montreal Canadiens honour Patrick Roy?
But I think a team retiring someone's jersey/number is in a different kind of a category, or at least should be. It's showing an overall respect for not only a player's individual record but also the 'overall' kind of team player and person he was.
Roy has often shown disrespect for the Habs and hockey in general, and left the team (and the game) under a cloud. He is no 'role model' for other players in any way. So why show such a level of respect to him by retiring his jersey?
