Thu, March 27, 2008

It's a shame that Gilles Courteau and the QMJHL have again catered to Patrick Roy's shenanigans. They had a chance this time to send a message that actions like that of the coach, and the player, who just happens to be his son, are receiving nothing more than a slap on the wrist.

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!

I agree with Lo, 7 games is a complete joke. If you add up all the suspendable offenses in baby Roys little outburst it would warrant at least 20 or 30 games, and that's a conservative estimate. Let's look at it anyways:

-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.

There should be criminal assault and battery charges!!!

This event is wrong on so many levels. I would agree that the actions of Jonathan ROY is criminal - skating down to the other end (clearly the other goalie wanted no part of it) and assaulting the other player. As for Patrick ROY his actions as a coach and as a father is totally disgusting. AS for the suspensions NOT nearly enough. One year for sonny boy and two for daddy would be more agreeable. As for Jonathan's so called apology - it was the finger and not for the assault. What is going on in this kids household to believe that his actions are correct. If one was truly sorry for his action, say it from the heart not from paper. His apology a media scam. I have read quotes from Kelly Hrudey about how this was over blown. Wrong - as a society that should have rules in place this WAS NOT hockey - this was a criminal assault. Where is the signal from the QMJHL. Hey should we expect anything different when Justice in Canada (especially in youth court) is not about handing out justice, but just a legal system.

What a mockery!!! 7 games and 5 game suspension is a laughing matter. It shows a lack of respect for the public and players. No other sport tolerates fighting the was it is tolerated in hockey. I do not have to see a fight to enjoy the game. I watch it for the skills the players show playing the game. Even the suspensions in the NHL are a travesty. Ban the players for a year or for life. I'm sure the goons and coaches will think twice before starting fights. Ban the Roys for a year. Next time the same situation would occur , ban them for life. I don't need to see that pit bull-faced Patrick Roy. He lost all my respect when he quit the Habs. He is a bella-donna and does whatever pleases him without repect for the youngsters learning to play hockey. What a poor example for the young players enjoying hockey.

Like father like son. They are both winy losers

Like father like son.

Spoiled ill mannered brat, just like dad, should have both got 35 games.

This is not fighting. It was an assault and he should be banned for life.

I watched the replay online...7 games is a joke...20 games minimum would send a stronger message...that type of behaviour should not be tolerated...hockey is a great enough sport without that crap...that was not even fighting...it was a violent attack on someone who clearly wanted no part of it...get those goons out of hockey NOW !!
