Another weird part of it is that there is plenty of evidence that Roy is smarter than your average ex-player. This is the guy that co-created modern scientific goaltending.

So lack reference to coaching ability might not be he lacks them. Its that these media guys are in fact storytellers, not analysts. Their opinions seem based narrative logic rather than evidence. I don't know if its because they are incapable of better or if that's just what they think the audience wants to hear.
