Regardless of his recent outbursts and shenanigans as a head coach, I don't think you can argue that Patrick Roy was one of the greatest goalies ever.
I absolutely admired this man growing up. I remember my stint as a floor/street hockey goalie where I was always "wearing" the number 33. I remember being willing to trade away almost any hockey card in order to add to my Patrick Roy card collection. I remember when I traded for that elusive rookie card. Sure, it wasn't in pristine condition, but it was still his rookie card.
And now nobody else will wear 33 on the back of a Habs jersey.
A great way to honor a living legend.
But I will confess that the Maple Leafs have way cooler banners to honor their legends.
