Okay so I am getting real sick and tired of all these DUMB threads about how this guy sucks and blah blah blah.
So I thought I would shake it up a bit by mentioning that J.R. will be back in town this Thursday (just got my tix, its my friends favorite player all-time). How do you fell about this and do you still like the guy?
Feel free to even share your favorite moments of Roenick.
JR v. Patrick Roy one of my favorite exchanges between athletes ever. Unfortunatley Roy wins. I don't think JR loses to many verbal battles.
In the 1996 Western Conference semi-finals between the Colorado Avalanche and the Chicago Blackhawks, Jeremy Roenick was stopped by Roy on a break-away during OT in game 4, while apparently being tackled by an Avalanche player. The referees did not call for a penalty shot on the play and the Avalanche won in triple overtime on Joe Sakic's game winning goal. Earlier in game 3, Roenick scored on an unchallenged breakaway to tie the score at 3 and send the game to overtime; the Blackhawks ended up winning the game.
After game 4, Roenick told the media "there should have been a penalty shot [on the play]. I like Patrick's comment when he said he could have stopped me [on the breakaway]. I'd like to know where Patrick was in Game 3, probably up trying to get his jock out of the rafters." Roy retorted with his now-famous line, "I can't really hear what Jeremy says, because I've got my two Stanley Cup rings plugging my ear." 
Roy and the Avalanche beat the Blackhawks in 6 games and went on to win the Cup.
