Burn! 19-year old Puts Roy in Place

This is a weird story, probably best understood by Habs fans and maybe no one else. Patrick Roy, of French heritage, is claiming Canadien rookie Guillaume Latendresse is only with the big club because he's, well, French. Via TSN,
Roy has recently said that he thinks the only reason 19-year-old rookie Latendresse remains with the Canadiens is because he's a francophone, suggesting if he was named Smith or Brown he'd be back in the Quebec junior league. Latendresse scored his first NHL goal on Tuesday and was asked about what Roy has been saying about him. ''It's me who's supposed to be 19, not him,'' said Latendresse.
More Even more interesting is that Roy is focusing on nitpicking a teenager's reason for success rather than on the biggest weekend of his career. He'll be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday.
