Brisebois Announces Retirement Tonight

I hope he finally gets the applause he deserves.

Most mis-understood d-man, he was never known for his defensive skills but for his offensive skills. Yet he was constantly criticized for his defensive play. Most offensive d-men have limited to average defensive skills. He helped us win our '93 cup with his offensive skills.

I just hope where ever he ends up, that he'll be appreciated.

Thanks Breezer for all you did in the CH. You had a good run playing over 1000 games in the NHL. Brisebois will also receive the Jean Beliveau trophy for his efforts last year. The trophy recognizes a player's effort, enthusiasm, involvement and time invested in collective and personal initiatives ( charity work). Best of luck with your future pursuits and perhaps coaching will be in the cards if not there is always racing.

Brisebois was the ultimate Hab in my book. Gave his best every game despite being asked to do more then his abilites could handle in his first stint with the Habs. Unfortunately he was booed because of it. He made mistakes on the ice and they were unjustly amplified by some fans and media. I wont remember him for his errors, but rather for his heart. All the best in your new carreer Pat. ;)

odd that he is doing it tonight. it would have been nice on the first home game of the season. Good luck breezer! thanks for the memories

Sad, really. His chip is still evident and he knew NOBODY would boo the guy who raised the most for charity.

My heart went out to him when he called out the people that ruined his career, cried and declared he was a winner and no one could take away that stanley cup ring from him. For all the harsh criticism he took, he was a true bleu, blanc et rouge and with his retirement, the last of the mohicans is now Matt Schneider, the last remaining active cup winner in a habs uniform. :(
