from Damian Cristodero of Lightning Strikes,
Hall of Fame goaltender Patrick Roy apparently has nothing better to do. Either that or he likes stirring the you-know-what just for the heck of it. Either way, the owner, coach, general manager of Quebec of the junior Quebec league, said (twice, actually) that the system Tampa Bay Lightning coach Guy Boucher used from 2006-09 as coach of Drummondville of the Quebec league, was not only too defensive it has permeated the league and stunted the development of some Quebec league players.
First, Roy told the French web site Le Soleil the system “perhaps delayed the development of some young players.” Roy also said his team will “play hockey as it should be played,” meaning more wide open and free-wheeling.
Roy then told the Journal de Montreal that, “Boucher did nothing to help our league advance. His defensive system was copied by many other teams. I know my comments will not please Guy, but for me hockey should be focused on offense not defense.”
