Nice try Sue But sorry, Hasek is not even in the same league. Even though I cannot decipher what the hell zeno said I agree that Brodeur is the only goalie even close to be worthy of a comparison to Roy. Plus Roy never had the defense in front of him that Detroit and New Jersey possess (especially when he played in CO).

Roy - 551 wins + 151 playoff wins + 4 Cups and 3 Conn Smythes

Broduer - 688 wins + 113 playoff wins + 3 Cups

Hasek - 389 wins + 65 playoff wins + 2 Cups


I will take Roy hands down, he was $$$$

Though the Bruins won the Presidents' Trophy as the NHL's top team during the regular season, they lost three of their four games against the Canadiens, including two games played in Boston (one in regulation, one in a shootout). The Canadiens have won six of the past seven games and are 351-264-103-7 in the regular season against the Bruins.
The Canadiens have won 24 of the 33 series and 102 of the 170 playoff games. We lost against the Bruins in 2009 and 2011, so we are due to beat them this year. Especially after the heartbreaking loss in 2011.....

I am proud to be able to brag about the fact that I was in attendance for one of those Patrick Roy Stanley Cup wins. 4 days later I attended my first GD concert. What a week that was.

I hear ya Jared. The Flying Fenchmen have been a thorn in my side forever. I am counting on the B's again this year to win. they should have had the cup last year. Tukka is too good now to lose.

Roy is one of the best of all time. I don't think any reasonable hockey fan would say otherwise. Since he was average, if not slightly below average, at puck handling, it would be easy enough to argue he wasn't best. For my money, I'd vote Brodeur above Roy. Like Hasek, he was like having a 3rd defenseman, and most likely, Brodeur will be known as the best puck handling goalie of all time.

Roy certainly had the skill, it's just unfortunate he chose to have a a bratty bad boy attitude to go with it, imho. That's why I find it very odd to see him coaching. I never thought of him as having a wise, leadership-type of personality.
This is where you can get into the inner culture of each sport. I never played organized hockey, but I played several other sports long enough to get a good grasp on their respective cultures. Hockey seems to be an interesting breed. Lots of psychology, though primal at heart, goes into it. I could see players responding well to Roy. He's a fellow meathead. It's easy for them to respect and relate to him. It's like people who want to vote leaders because they're like them. "He's a beer-drinking guy. I could watch football and eat me some BBQ with them. I like that. I don't want me no smart guy telling me what to do." They'll follow Roy into battle, and that is no small thing. It's like the antithesis of Hitchcock and Babcock. Their players trust in their chess maneuvers and mindful systems. Different types of respect and admiration, but they all result in similar places. Roy's style has its limits, though. Or I would assume it does. Chess players can adjust to new situations. The brutes are one-dimensional with less adaptability.

The difference in the testosterone-fueled coach versus the chess player was quite evident when I watched Roy pull his goalie with an entire 2:44 left, and then saw Minnesota, of course, score 2 empty net goals. I'm hope it gave his team a rush, but it sure lost the game for them this time.

On the other hand, you gotta love a Game 7, no matter what the sport or who the teams may be!!

The refs helped a little. There's been a lot of questionable reffing this playoffs. I thought a 5m major for that spearing on Perry was absurd. He deserved a spanking, but that was too much.
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

I agree but even with those bad calls, the Sharks only got one goal. No goals made in the power play and Kings had two in the box at one time.
