Yes, Fisher is strongly opposed to Roy's number being retired. He's mentioned it several times in the last year, most recently when the announcement was made official last month. He says Roy quit on the team and that his behaviour was unprofessional and disgraceful. He's never forgiven Roy for the blowup he had with Tremblay, and he's written a lot of stuff about all the rotten things Roy's done in the past. He just doesn't like Roy, and takes every opportunity to point that out. That's how I actually saw the Schneider story; as another chance to denounce Roy.
