Hall of Famer and all around legend of the sport Guy Lafleur was laid to rest today in Montreal during a very touching funeral that saw literally dozens of hockey's most famous people gathered to pay their respects.

While there were several touching moments from the ceremony, it was another Montreal Canadiens legend, Patrick Roy, who made the biggest impact for me.

Listen to Roy's entire speech below:


Chills... absolute chills.

I'm too young to have truly experience Lafleur's prime playing days, but Roy is right in my wheelhouse. The way Roy speaks about Lafleur... that's the way I felt about Roy so I can understand the sentiment and the earnestness in his voice.

RIP Guy Lafleur. Gone, but never forgotten.
