DENVER -- Hall of Fame goalie Patrick Roy is the new head
coach and vice president of hockey operations of the Colorado Avalanche.

"This is an unbelievable day for me," said Roy. "It's a new and exciting
challenge that I am really looking forward to. I would like to thank Stan and
Josh Kroenke for this opportunity as well as Joe Sakic for the trust they are
putting in me. Almost 10 years to the day that I announced my retirement as a
player I am back in Denver and hope the fans are as excited as I am."

 

Great News for the Colorado Avalanche. He was a great coach in the Q, I wish him the best in the big league!

Two legends for Colorado will help them dearly. And look for Dallas to make a splash going for AV. West is already better and might keep even better again

How long till he gets fined by the NHL? :P  Dude was fined about 4 times in the QMJHL over the years for criticizing game officials and league officials and of course he had that 5 game suspension after that huge brawl in 2008.

So the first time his team let's up 8 goals he gets pissed and asks to go to the Habs right?

Roy is probably an upgrade but Sakic/Roy as GM is just asking for Nieuwendyk/Hull levels of failure. It'll be harder to screw up in CO if Jones is good and they keep ROR to go w/ Duchene, Landeskog and such and Roy doesn't mentally destroy Varlamov but there's still no guarantee

You mean When Stevens is GM  :P

 

gad I sort of hope not.  Unless I see into the future and success is guaranteed for decades.

I wonder how he does. He seems a bit abrasive, in the Torts mold, and I don't see that working with a young NHL team, despite his success in juniors.
