"Ugh" is right...

On most other teams, a goalie would've been pulled long before giving up nine goals on 26 shots; in most other rinks, few would notice or care much if he mumbled something to the team president; in most other cities a crap outing wouldn't make the paper and would blow over, not precipitate a blockbuster trade 72 hours later. Montréal is not like other teams. Montréal loves its drama.

Anyway Go Habs Go.

I will never forget watching tsn highlights the next morning and seeing my hero get shelled like he was an American running through the jungles of Nam, such a depressing week that was, and i was merely 11 years old. If Patrick can hold his temper I really think he would make a good coach one day
Thanks for the good memories #33
I'll have my autographed picture till the day I die.
Komisarek's on the other hand, lets just say I'm trying to trade that for a new easton, lol leaf fans really will overpay for anything

**** Mario Tremblay, still have a hard time believing people still respect this puke. Things went south from then... Good thing we're looking good, or better, much better.

So why did it take 9 goals for Tremblay to pull him?

As sad as that clip is, I still love watching Roy play!

Is that trade the official beginning of the dark ages?

Fanboys can sit and drool over that bag of dirt's spittle all they want
It doesn't change the fact that Roy put himself above the team.
Pompous, self-serving, self- centered jack-off.
Only one in sports worse than him would be Barry bonds

Wonder what his ex-wife and kids have to say about him?

He's the one that bolted and yet we retire his number
He was as guilty in all this as Tremblay was.

Tremblay expected him to bleed bleu blanc rouge, not bleu blanc roy

I have to agree with you, Roy is a pretty big butthead.

I have always been of the same opinion...he put himself above the team, and it's always been tough for me to accept....we needed a mediator of sorts to have things settle down between he and Mario, and then they would have been able to get better value in a trade....oh well...

So true! It's one thing to lose such a great player, it's another to make such a bad trade...

I blame everyone for the debacle. Roy for acting immature and the management for acting immature as well and not handling it properly.

I love Lind just because of his name. JUUUUHAAAA!! I was 10 or 11 when we got him, I think.

As far as Roy goes? He was one of my idols until that day. And as much as I disagree with the decision to leave him in the net for 9 goals, I also disagree with the way he handled it and I was happy to move onto Theodore & Hackett in the near future. I always felt like Roy quit on his teammates - and that's not acceptable in my books. I know I never played pro sports, but I still have a never give up attitude.

I remember losing a soccer game 10-0 after one half and our coach wanted to forfeit. I remember saying "You can quit if you want but I'm going back out there." .. We stayed, we played, and we ended up winning the second half 2-1. I'm sure they were resting a lot of their good players, but that's not the point. Never take your heart out of the game and I felt Roy let down not only millions of fans around the world, but the 22 guys closest to him in that dressing room -- well maybe with the exception of Keane who got to win a cup.

There has been a lot of terrible suits in the montreal organization in the past, Tremblay should have taken Roy out early, not because of the goals but because he was obviously an emotional reck, glaring at defenseman when goals went in, taunting the fans back when they were taunting him. Tremblay on the other hand showed that by the way he handled the entire situation he never saw eye to eye with Roy. Roy is a baby with a bad temper for sure, but back then he was a superstar baby, stars goalies don't come a long all the time, just ask Philly. If
Roy wanted a bit of say on team direction, I think they should have listened. Our coaching, GM and owner were all quite poor at the time, if things began to not work then they could have traded Roy on their terms and maybe got some decent return, definitely one of the worst trades in history. Do you think that management for their respected teams never listened to Gretkzy, Crosby, etc? these are special players who need special treatment IMO

Did you think about that comment? Really?

Roy was 29 when he left and as a goalie still had some of his best years ahead of him. Koivu, a small forward who suffered multiple injuries and had cancer left at 33 with little left in the tank.

I love Koivu but that he left in 2009 instead of finishing his career here in 2012, 13 or 14 doesn't matter much as he would have a secondary role on the team right now. I'd rather have him than Gomez but it really wouldn't be that much of an upgrade.

Tremblay was being a butthead and trying to put Roy in his place.

Demers was the previous coach and while he obviously had success with the team, he was the first guy to really put Roy up on a pedestal.

When Tremblay came in he obviously was not prepared to do this which didn't sit well with Roy. The two butted heads on a few occasions (i believe Roy made fun of Tremblay at a practice or something along those lines), and Tremblay obviously held his susperstar out to dry during that brutal Detroit game.

IMO both Roy and Tremblay were to blame for the whole mess. But i could do without watching that video ever again...

Koivu & Gomez's effort level is pretty similar. Gomez usually gives it his all - I usually can't complain about that. However, unlike Koivu, Gomez doesn't really make his linemates that much better. Koivu ALWAYS made his linemates that much better.
