Patrick Roy, the NHL's winningest goaltender, and Herb Brooks, coach of the "Miracle on Ice" team that won gold at the 1980 Olympics, were inducted Monday into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Former Canadiens and Avalanche goaltending great Patrick Roy is among four inductees in the 2006 Hockey Hall of Fame class.
Calling Peter Laviolette the next Herb Brooks might be unfair, but there is no denying he might be the start of a new lineage of successful U.S.-born coaches.
Herb Brooks was remembered Friday as an innovative hockey coach who inspired some of the best to play the sport and as a modest man who didn't comprehend the impact he had. Brooks died Monday in a car accident.
