Even if you weren't a hockey fan in 1995, I'm sure you heard about the famous Patrick Roy incident with Montreal Canadiens' head coach Mario Tremblay.
On December 2, 1995, Patrick Roy allowed nine goals on 26 shots. It was an embarrassing day, not only for Roy himself, but for the team and the fans of Montreal. Throughout the game, Roy made many gestures symbolizing that he wanted to get the yank.
Tremblay kept him in net, however, which proved to be the decision that sent one of the best goaltenders in the history of the NHL packing. When he was finally pulled after the ninth goal, Roy leaned over to the Montreal Canadiens president and said he would never play for Montreal again.
Roy asked for a trade the same day, and his wish was granted four days later when he and Mike Keane were traded to the Colorado Avalanche for Jocelyn Thibault, Martin Rucinsky and Andrei Kovalenko.
