Patrick Roy goes crazy on Bruce Boudreau

Was the divider held together with goodwill or is patric Roy a small wrecking ball?

And can Simone Photoshop Patrick Roy into that miley cyrus video, please?

I wondered this in another thread. How long it would take before Roy-boy goes crazy. Well you didn't let me down. It took you one game. Altough I didn't watch the end. I only read the game notes. So I guess I can't say what exactly happened. It just didn't surprise me. I was rather expecting it. Thanks for not letting me down.

After the game ended, Roy received a game misconduct after he and Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau got into a shouting match and Roy shoved the divider between the benches, nearly pushing it onto Boudreau.

There are some Roytastic pictures out there of the kerfluffle, if I wasn't so tired I would try to find some...

There's one where it looks like he's roaring, I s*** you not.

He's an emotional guy which does not bode well for such a young team. You want a team to play as much with their emotions as they do with their brains, which will be difficult under Roy. I hope they have a good PK.

This was the play in question. Roy thought this was a knee-on-knee, trying to injure McKinnon. Doesn't look intentional to me.

In slow motion I'd say it's borderline...

At game speed - from across the ice - I can see where Roy would be pissed off.

It looks dirty, he didn't even flinch away. He opened his left leg making him even wider. Was it terrible or completely malicious? No, but at game speed I can understand Roy getting pissed. I cannot, however, understand why he always feels the need to be the "last word" type of guy. It just makes him look bad.

On prohockeytalk they had an article of boudreau's reaction to Roy's on bench reaction.. calling Roy's actions "Bush league."

While I don't disagree.. the first comment made me laugh.

"Some may argue losing 6-1 to an Avalanche team with a rookie coach, and an even less experienced team is bush league."

:P it's gunna be an exciting season with Roy on the bench.. can't wait for the wings' first encounter!

That's our Patty Waahhh... no surprise that he's in character, trying to beat down whoever is in his cross-hairs. The Avs could use some passion, that's for sure. And Boudreau can dish it out, too.

Hockey is fun, eh? ;)

I was wondering when his first maniacal episode would occur, didn't expect it in game one. The guy has severe anger control issues and this won't be his last flip out. Hopefully he won't embarrass the league too bad.

Can a head coach be an enforcer?

Also, this sorta reminds me of Crawford-Bowman.

Not on the Red Wings. It takes five guys to make a power play squad.

(Well, technically ten, but you know...)

Reminded me of Crawford-Bowman too.

Also, the really funny thing here is that everyone and his mom had been making jokes about how Roy's going to go after someone (as in the turtle brawl) in his very first game. I don't think many actually thought it'd happen, though.

"AAARRGGHH!!! CURSE THIS GLASSY, PLASTIC-LIKE MATERIAL WHICH CONTAINS ME!!!! *POUND-POUND*"

I hate Roy, and I hate Perry, but seeing him jawing at him which lead to the Boudreau confrontation was wicked.

He didn't even make it through his first regular season NHL game as a coach without completely losing his mind.

Too funny. Maybe he'll surprise me but him coaching seems bad for the Avs.
