Nice link... ;)

That was quick. I wasn't expecting them to name the coach till mid June.

The can will be fuller this season than it has been in years.

henchman24 05-20-2013 11:19 PM

I really hope this is true! Roy will be a great coach.

CoachBadkitten 05-20-2013 11:21 PM

Love It! Roy will be great for this team.

HF007 05-20-2013 11:23 PM

So much for the "long time" Sakic comment - being that deceitful, he'll fit right into Avs management :laugh:

(And I was unaware that the head coaching thread was rolling on this already.. Whoops)

MartinLetain21 05-20-2013 11:29 PM

This has to be great news for Varly. Getting a head coach whose number 1 area of expertise is goaltending. I've not seen his style though. Never seen a Remparts game. Is he a offensive coach? Defensive minded? Trap? Would love to hear from people who know.

We're going to keep this thread open, just like with the Guy Boucher rumor...but I will tell the other thread to post ALL Roy related talk in this thread.

I read a post on the main boards that said he's coach a up-tempo and exciting style. So definitely not defensive.

I have a feeling Dutchy is going to take another leap under Patty Roy's system

Not even close to a trap. Roy hates the trap with a passion. Very uptempo, quick transition offensive style. Defensemen need to be good skaters, puck handlers, and have a good first pass to work well in his system.

Colorado Sports Fan 05-20-2013 11:34 PM

Hope this is true and not an epic troll.

CalderKing21 05-20-2013 11:34 PM

i just pray this is true. i think a Kroenke,Sakic,Roy & Sherman front office combo would do some serious work.

Credit to Mario Roy on twitter. ;)

I just took his tweet and posted it on here since it was already being discussed.

Bonzai12 05-20-2013 11:39 PM

If nothing else, this sells tickets. I mean let's be honest here - whether Roy sucks or not, this team needs to put some butts in the seats.

Does he fall under the 7 years of service?

Rhaego 05-20-2013 11:47 PM

Radulov is a UFA this summer I believe (would need to get out of his KHL deal)
