“Who’s in Goals … ?”

Patrick Roy is considering becoming the coach of the Canadiens. Serge Savard wants to make sure he knows what he’s getting into …

Savard: Strange as it may seem, they give hockey players nowadays very peculiar names.

Roy: Funny names?

Savard: Nicknames, nicknames. Now, on the St. Louis team – we have Who’s in goals, What’s on left wing and I Don’t Know is the center …

Roy: That’s what I want to find out. I want you to tell me the names of the fellows on the St. Louis team.

Savard: I’m telling you. Who’s in goals, What’s on left wing and I Don’t Know is the center.

Roy: You know the fellows’ names?

Savard: Yes.

Roy: Well, then who’s in goals?

Savard: Yes.

Roy: I mean the fellow’s name in goals.

Savard: Who.

Roy: The fellow playin’ goals …

Savard: Who.

Roy: The guy in goals.

Savard: Who is in goals.

Roy: Well, what are you askin’ me for?

Savard: I’m not asking you–I’m telling you. Who is in goals.

Roy: I’m asking you–who’s in goals?

Savard: That’s the man’s name.

Roy: That’s who’s name?

Savard: Yes.


Roy: When you pay off the goalie every month, who gets the money?

Savard: Every dollar of it. And why not, the man’s entitled to it.

Roy: Who is?

Savard: Yes.

Roy: Who’s wife?

Savard: Yes. After all, the man earns it.

Roy: Who does?

Savard: Absolutely.

Roy: Well, all I’m trying to find out is what’s the guy’s name in goals?

Savard: Oh, no, no. What is on left wing.

Roy: I’m not asking you who’s on left wing !

Savard: Who’s in goals!


Roy: St. Louis has a good second line?

Savard: Oh, absolutely.

Roy: The right winger’s name?

Savard: Why.

Roy: I don’t know, I just thought I’d ask.

Savard: Well, I just thought I’d tell you.

Roy: Then tell me who’s playing right wing ?

Savard: Who’s playing goals.

Roy: Stay out of the crease. The right winger’s name?

Savard: Why?

Roy: Because.

Savard Oh, he’s the back – up goalie.

Roy: Wait a minute. You got a second centerman on this team?

Savard: Wouldn’t this be a fine team w i t h o u t a second center man?

Roy: Tell me the centerman’s name.

Savard: Tomorrow.

Something says it will be a very long summer …
