Patrick Roy Fined for Pea-Brain Remarks

From the CP via the Globe & Mail:

Patrick Roy has been fined by the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for being overly critical of a rival GM.

The league slapped Quebec Remparts head coach and GM with a $2,000 fine Wednesday for making ”inappropriate remarks.” Roy told reporters in Quebec City on Saturday that Shawinigan Cataractes GM Martin Mondou ”has a brain the size of a pea.”

The remarks were made after Mondou called for tighter security at the Pepsi Colisee after his players were showered with beer and other debris by fans when leaving the ice at the end of a game. Mondou said the Remparts’ home rink was dangerous.

I think asking Patty Roy to make a remark that is not pea-brained is grossly unfair and highly-unrealistic.

Send him to Colorado; it’ll be hard to talk smack about other GM’s while his team rebuilds the Blues and Senators

Very nice wording on the headline… could have easily used “Pea-Brained Remarks,” but that could have been misconstrued.

And, oddly enough, just as accurate.
