Patrick Roy

Patrick Roy was one of the greatest goaltenders that ever lived. Like Ken Dryden did fifteen years before, Roy came out of nowhere to become the starting netminder for the Montreal Canadians and took them to a Stanley Cup in 1986. The difference though, is that the 1986 team had no real business winning that trophy, and had it not been for the emergence of “Saint Patrick” it would not have happened. The same could have been said for the Montreal team that won in 1993; as again Roy backstopped a squad that probably would not have come close without him. Roy was beloved in Montreal and was certifiably amongst the best goalies in the NHL, but even legends have an off night.
