1993 was an awesome playoff year. First Gilmour vs Gretzky which was insane then Roy vs Gretzky. Roy was the "King" that playoff.

The Leafs, Kings and Habs were very good but not great teams and those 3 players really led their teams in a single handed fashion not often seen in the NHL playoffs.

edit: I just noticed you stole something else other than the concept from the Messier thread
LOL it took me forever to find what you were referring to there.

For me, too young to really remember Roy as a Canadien. The first Montreal goalie I remember watching was Thibault. So Avs for me.

Again, like the Messier poll, the Avs option should be divided into "too young so chose Avs" and "watched entire career but still chose Avs". I think it can distort the results when you consider the number of young people voting in this poll.

look back at that habs D... they were babies...

Desjardins = 23 yrs

Schneider = 23 yrs

Odelein = 22 yrs

Haller = 22 yrs

Brisebois = 22 years

JJ Deigneult = 27 yrs

I know the montreal canadiens were a 102 pt team (this was before the OTL was introduced), but I'm astonished that they got it done with this youthfulness on the D. Granted, most of these d-men went to have very long careers but it just goes to show exactly how much Patrick Roy had on his plate.

BTW, I think of him more as a hab but that's mostly because I'm a fan montreal's. When he left for colorado, they became my fav western team too... but since he retired, not so much.

That's never happened. The Kings went on to sweep the Habs to win the Cup.

I'm tempted to say the avs because like so many others you were limited in the teams yoy could watch back when roy was a hab. I really respect what he did as a hab and I didn't get into hockey til shortly before he became an avs.

I think I'm gonna refrain from voting because I just don't think I'm qualified to vote.

He was better as a Hab, not by much but still better. Two Cups for each team, but two Smythes for the Habs as opposed to one for the Avs.

No Vezinas as an Av, but three as a Hab. One post season all-star nod as an Av, but 5 as a Hab. I've got my vote in. Plus from '88-93 there may have been 3-4 players that were better than him #99, #66 and Bourque. From '96-03 he wasnt ever a top 5 player probably not even top 10

To Roy's defense, he stepped up his game when it mattered. With the Avs, they were such a good team that he didn't have to be the best player every night.

I'd have to say Habs, only because if the situation we're ever reversed and Brodeur ever went anywhere else I'd always still see him as a Devil
