Roy's jersey should be retired. It wont be now and it's ok like this but it's just a matter of time. He won us the 2 last cups in the last 20 years (in 2006 which is soon) all by himself. Only the run in the playoffs of '93 with all the wins in overtime give him right to have his jersey retired!!
He have play more seasons in Montreal, He won the Conn Smythe 2 times in Montreal (the 2 cups) the first trophee on his Rookie year in Mtl.
It's enough, I think you get my point.
Everything such has the special situation when he leaves and the angry of most here about the return we get for him in this trade should not count:
When the greatest goaltender in hockey's history have played most of his career in the greatest franchise of pure hockey tradition, the result should be as simple as 1+1=2, His jersey will be retired AS IT SHOULD BE imo.
