Simply put he's not only one of the best goalies in the history of the Habs, but in the history of the NHL.
He walked out on the team, period. He said, "I'm never playing for this team again." That's not only saying **** you to the coach who was definitely wrong not to pull him earlier, but it's saying **** you to all his fans and fans of the Canadiens. he could have worked it out, but chose right away to say" 'i'm never playing for the canadiens again." Didn't even want to think about all the fans he would disappoint by not even attempting to work it out.
Patrick Roy, great player, horrible Hab. I think it takes more than just being a great player to have your number retired.
I don't want a loose cannon having his number retired by the Habs. He doesn't deserve it. He's still a *******, and that's another reason it shouldn't be done. It's funny how people refer to his behaviour as "little incidents".
That's not what they were. I guess if you have a great career, then you're entitled to be as much of a degenerate as u want. At least according to some posters here.
