Strong words from Roy

Patrick Roy, probably the best goaltender to lace em' up in the NHL, believes that the owners basically had no choice but to reject the latest NHLPA proposal. Speaking with Le Journal de Montreal, the shoe-in Hall of Famer said that the Players offer was nothing more than a PR move.

"The owners had every reason to turn down the players' offer. The Players' Association's proposal's only goal was to win popular favour." Roy continues, "The ten teams with the weakest revenues must not forget about the salary cap. Adoption of a cap means survival for the teams in trouble."

Interesting indeed. Too bad he's a former player.
