from Mike Boone of Habs Inside/Out,
La Presse reports the Canadiens will retire Patrick Roy’s jersey number in November.
The club would not confirm the story. Columnist Richard Labbé was told the team plans to announce its centennial activities on Sept. 24.
Roy’s number 33 already has been retired by the Colorado Avalanche.
If the story is true, at least one pundit won’t be happy. In March, Red Fisher wrote:...
In my view, Roy abdicated his rights to that honour with his capitulation to irrationalism on Dec. 2, 1995, when a stunned Forum crowd saw him allow nine goals on 26 shots in an 11-1 meltdown to the Detroit Red Wings.
