Following the now infamous hockey brawl involving his son, Jonathan Roy, should the Montreal Canadiens honour Patrick Roy?
It is clear from the video that Patrick prompted his son to take action and that the kid, knowing he better do what his father says, let alone his coach, does not use his better judgement but instead, makes an even bigger fool of his family name by the extent to which he listened.
As a player, I had a tremendous amount of respect for Patrick but as a coach, I am losing patience. I heard his antics in Moncton in the Memorial Cup with a grown and respected man taking on kids with his comments and then again last year with is antics I believe in this same rink.
Patrick, wake up; you don't need to resort to these tactics to be a good coach and the kids you are leading and should be setting an example for deserve better from you!

-Crossing centre ice to fight
-Assaulting the other goalie, yes, ASSAULTING. The Chicoutimi goalie clearly wanted no part of it.
-The obscene finger gestures.
-Fighting again on his way off the ice.
-Resisting the officials.
That's a long ol' list, but he only gets 7 games...right. The Chicoutimi player who left the bench to fight Roy got 6 games, for basically defending his teammate from a raving lunatic. Gee, I wonder if Roy and his daddy's suspension is because of his daddy's status? Nahhhhhhh couldn't be. What a complete joke. The QMJHL should be ashamed of itself, mostly because they say they want less violence and then when a truly henious incident occurs they hand out a wrist slap for punishment. bah. Of course the Roy's were contrite, because they know they got off extremely easy. Again, a complete joke.
