The other variable in the final analysis of the Lindros-to-Quebec trade deals with Patrick Roy. Under no circumstance would the Montreal Canadiens trade the then-disgruntled goalie to the Quebec Nordiques considering the rivalry the teams had both on and more importantly OFF the ice (quite possibly the most heated rivalry in the NHL at the time). If the Nords stayed in Quebec instead of relocating to Colorado, Roy in all likelihood would have been traded to another suitor.
