Au revoir Guillaume

Dear Patrick Roy

I see you have finally claimed my sweet Guillaume. Please make sure he finishes his bottle of wine and tuck him in tight when you put him to bed. He likes bedtime stories, and not surprisingly he likes hockey stories. Don’t read him any stories with wolves or billy-goats because he might get scared and you will never get him to sleep. Then you will have to stay in his room all night holding him while he cries and waiting for him to doze off.

Now, before you get him out there on the ice, there is a little thing that you must do. Take a quick look at his skates. No I am serious, go get his skates right now. This is important. I will wait while you go get them.

Hmmmmmmm hmmmmm hmmmm hmmmmm (runs fingers through Guillaume’s hair while he sleeps). Whispers "Its OK Guillaume, you can be closer to P-O if you are in Quebec. Keep my P-O safe and coo at him for me." hmmm hmmmm hmmm hmmm

Oh, Patty you’re back. No he is asleep, we should move to another room with better lighting. Oui. Ok, see the little sticker on the side, down near the blade – the one that says “for best deflection into our net aim here”. Yeah, you should totally remove that. We forgot and it turned out to be a huge pain in the ass all season. No one has ever accused our coaching staff of being smart.
