5. Mathieu Schneider
This is one of the most common rumors that fly around not only the hockey
world but the sports world as a whole. Since it is such a common rumor,
fans often have fun speculating which of the rumors are true and which are false.
It is no secret that while they were teammates, Mathieu Schneider and Patrick Roy did not get along.
When Schneider was traded to the New York Islanders during the 1994-95 season,
rumors began to surface that it was due to Schneider having an affair with Roy’s wife.
The rumor exploded and many believe it to be true, and over two decades later
stories of players being traded for alleged affairs with teammate’s wives are still common.
