Wow. Jacques Demers, Patrick Roy’s former Habs coach, is saying that the Colorado goalie will retire before next season starts.
Colorado is probably freaking out. They don’t really have a number one goalie ready to go, plus without Roy, Peter Forsberg might also decide to leave the NHL and play in his native Sweden.
I don’t think Roy will leave, though. He’s too much of a competitor. He’ll rest for a few weeks, start to feel better, and he’ll be back between the pipes for next season.
