This concept was stolen from the Messier poll:

Which team do you most associate Patrick Roy with?

To me this one is dead even. His career in Montreal was longer and more successful (in terms of personal accolades, championships are of course equal), but being a Red Wings fan most of my feelings about Roy (pretty much all negative, as if you had to ask) were formed during his days with the Avalanche. People often wonder about why the Wings-Avs rivalry has lost its luster in recent years, and the single biggest factor (in my opinion) was Roy retiring in after 2002.

this is one that I've thought a lot about as well. I know Roy had a lot of success with the Avs, but in my mind i always think of him as a hab.

God this is so hard.

I always remember him as an amalgamation of the two.

Ugh.. I chose the Avalanche since I saw him play there longer, but I suppose that's not enough reason to vote.

Ahh I knew this would happen, now I'm not sure of my vote.

Avs, I was 10 years old when he left Montreal so I mostly remember him as an Avalanche.

Avs, probably because before I had center ice the only teams I could watch were the Lightning and whoever was on ESPN and Colorado was on alot during the regular season and of course playoffs.

It's a dead heat, but I'll give the slightest edge to the Avs.

After he left Montreal the way he did, he somewhat tarnished his legacy here. Maybe that will change when they retire his number next year (and they will, no matter how much I oppose it), but for now I'll say the Avs.

edit: I just noticed you stole something else other than the concept from the Messier thread

well in 2001-02 Roy was suppose to win the vezina , but the MTL medias made a star out of nothing, and made sure that Roy wouldnt win . They still had the trade in mind.

But you're right , and i'm going with Mtl

Even though I was young when he was in Montreal, I still chose Montreal because when I picture Roy, it's usually in a Habs sweater and not an Avs one.

However, I had only been a real hockey fan for about 4 years at the time Roy was traded to Colorado.

Habs

Though he was such a great Av he should get his sweater retired in both cities and be regarded as a great superstar for both teams.
