As a very good goaltender Roy should maybe have his number retired. As a model and a MAN for the young he should be hanged from the rafters and lets not forget he told the Canadien to go to hell. Forget it, No he shouldn`t be honored.

I've read all the comments so far and I'm surprised at how much venom there is directed at Roy the player rather than Roy the coach.

Give the player his due - Roy was the best goalie in terms of wins and has won Stanley cups with two teams.

Roy was hung out to dry by a coach who amounted to no more than an egotistical A-HOLE as a head coach, center of attention, the big boss. Roy was absolutely right to do what he did then, based on how he was treated by the head coach. He was the anchor on a floundering team that played like crap against a league powerhouse. Considering his stature on the team then - he deservered to be pulled out.

Our team management at the time consisted of Ron Corey who legacy will show he did absolutely nothing except make bad decisions in running the team. Rejean Houle who was a great supporting player but absolutely sucked as GM, and Magnificent Mario Tremblay who cultivated his ego starring in the french media and who for a long time before Bob Gainey thought they could run the team through the press. Mario sucked, and is very lucky his buddy Jacques Lemaire took him in Minnesota.

Now for Roy the coach. He did not learn anything from Mario Tremblay on the night he pulled the plug in Montreal, because he acted exactly the same way - an egotistical A-HOLE in the heat of the moment. Roy is not a coach, and really should resign his post after the season. As for the suspensions they were not nearly enough - they should have removed them completely from the playoffs.

As for my Habs retiring Roy's number in the near future - they should pass on this one for a long while.

I believe a player should be honored not only for his successes on the ice but for his overall sportsmanship and personality. Patrick Roy was good, but his attitude and antics DO NOT make him worthy of having his name up on the rafters. I have lived in Montreal all my life and been a Habs fan for 36 years, but I would be embarrassed to see Roy's jersey up there. Let Colorado do it, that's where Roy wanted to go anyhow.

Spoiled, rotten tempered babies the two of them. Charge him for assault and put him behind bars for 6 months, I'm sure daddy will bail him out though and isn't he already used to the court systems anyway having being charged for abusing his wife. I do hope the other goalie presses charges.

Patrick is a great hall of fame goaltender but he quit on us. Let the Avs retire his number.

Guy from Ottawa. You and your hockey buddies, haa. You are probably bed buddies with George Know it all O'Leary. See you soon.
Pete, 2008-03-29 08:43:36

Pete, disapointed I missed you when you were in Ottawa recently. Let me know next time you're in town. I'll introduce you to some of my hockey buddies and maybee we'll pass you around. Ya little worm.
Guy from Ottawa, 2008-03-28 17:43:42

Ummm, sorry guy from Ottawa. My immaturity got the best of me. I would like to say it won't happen again but that would be a lie. Oh by the way, I had the chance to visit Ottawa last May and was quite taken aback by all the support for the Sens, flags waving, horns tooting etc...I was there again two weeks ago and nothing. shhhhut up you band wagon, flag waving blow hard. Ooops, sorry.

I know that fans are guffawing at the notion by some Quebec politicians that a total ban of fighting from junior hockey is needed. Well, I just see that Todd Bertuzzi is suing his former coach, Marc Crawford, on grounds of negligence from the Steve Moore affair. This, while Moore is also in process of suing Bertuzzi for mega bucks. It occurs to me that should Moore be even moderately successful in his suit, then never mind the politicians, because most players may never want to fight again either!

Hey Pete, remember now, mature subject matter my friend.
