07:31 AM ET 10.04 | Patrick Roy enters the weekend a little lighter in the wallet, but he may have gained a few fans within his own dressing room. While Roy said he understood and accepted the fine, he expressed no regrets about the incident."This is the role of the coach at some point. I love my players, and I will always be behind my players," Roy said. "I think it was what needed to be done." ... Then, Roy fired back at Boudreau's charge that his actions were "classless." "What Boudreau said was all lies," Roy said. "I'm certainly not going to get too involved in this one, but when you talk about classless -- when you're lying, this is classless. This is the league policy and I understand it now, but at the same time I will always defend my players. Things happen. This is the way I dealt with this one."

Roy said. "I'm certainly not going to get too involved in this one, but when you talk about classless -- when you're lying, this is classless...."

Then ... he goes ahead and gets involved anyway.

Classless lair!

They should fine the guy that put in the partition. Pretty poor workmanship in my opinion.

I caught the first two periods of the Nucks last night. Doesn't seem like much has changed.

The sisters haven't had a chance to enjoy the full benefits of the three finger treatment yet. Stay tuned.

He has a lair?? He is pure evil (because really, who has a lair other than a super villain?). What's classless about it, is it not a skull shaped island?

Sorry. But how often does one get to use "lair" in every day conversation? We have to run with it.

New mandate: Glass partitions must come with a Roy-rating of at least 33.

33? That's the crackhead full of Redbull rating isn't it?

Or he could save his angst and simply speed bag Pierre M next time he's between benches.
