Patrick Roy

Patrick Roy is the reason I'm a Habs fan. He was the greatest goaltender to ever play the game. He played with skill, heart and passion. He was an innovator, a champion, and seemed to play his best when it really counted. I remember watching a couple games from the '93 playoffs in a hospital bed (recovering from the 'getting shot' in the arm) enroute to yet another Stanley Cup championship.

Patrick Roy was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame yesterday, and rightly so. He holds numerous records which I suspect will not be broken for some time, if ever. I wouldn't be surprised to see him coaching in the NHL sometime soon as well.
