If it had anything to do with the Habs, the Habs would be holding a press conference, not Roy.

My bet is he wants to address things before he gets bombarded.

I was responding to Rscorpio's post.

I should have "quoted" it.

Smell like the press conference would be to leave him alone until the Ramparts are eliminated. It is becoming a distraction to him right now and the focus need to be on his team for the time being...

So he will say "Stop bothering me until Ramps are out", and it will make sense.

Roy would like nevertheless to have the head with 100% with the Ramparts, for the duration of their eliminatory series. I think that in the next weeks, there will be many speculations. [...] Me, I do not want to really embark in the speculations. Because I am at present occupied with a club junior. Personally, I n' do not have the taste d' to have distractions. J' have rather the taste to concentrate to help my team to go further possible and d' to eliminate these distractions.

He said that today already.


Still no link and I can't remember a press conference at 10PM except Obama when Bin Laden was killed...

Edit: I also listen to a Quebec city radio station right now, they are talking about Roy but nothing about a press conference.

Well, he needs to quit his current position before they announce they hired him. No? The other way around would be ackward.

In any case, it's more likely to dispel any rumours and eliminate the distractions to his current team. If he wasn't in the playoffs, then I would believe it had something to do with the Habs but it's not the case.

Don't get any crazy ideas. He's got a playoff team to coach.

As for Roy, as much as I'd like it to happen, never forget it's the GM who hires the coach. Savard even said in an interview to LCN that he would not interfere between the choice of the new coach, as he himself wouldn't have liked someone to take decisions in his place when he was GM.

Now I'm not saying that the coach won't be Patrick Roy anyways, because he seems like the most viable option out there, but don't hold your breath for him announcing anything is signed at this presser.

And if really, he announces he's the new head coach, well then, that means the GM is already decided, even though not publicly announced.

You may just be messing around, but if you're actually serious with these posts, you've confused Andre Savard with Serge Savard.

^^This^^

Patrick Roy's record as the head coach, GM and part owner of the Québec Remparts:

307W – 138L – 32 OTL (!!) + a memorial cup.

That's a points% of 67,7% - the equivalent (82 games basis) of a 111 points season.

No one has a higher compete level than Roy.

I don't want Brisebois as GM, it's not because of you have been a mediocre defenseman in the NHL and you race cars that you can suddenly become the manager of a pro franchise.

There is a huge difference between the QMJHL and the NHL. Just ask Dale Hunter how different junior is from the NHL.

At this point it's clear that there is no such press conference.

Still, if your criteria is not the record in a lower level what is it ?
We can't hire always the same damn coaches with NHL experience.
