I hate to say this but then Avs need to fire Sacco and his assistants and then hire Ruff and his staff of choice and a franchise that won't pay for a full-time goalie coach simply won't do that. We have already seen Lacroix and his puppets pass on Carlyle,Hitchcock and Boudreau and they will pass on Ruff. Ruff might end up in Washington they can't be too happy with Oates.

No thanks. We have one guy able to con management into keeping him employed, we don't need another.

Come on losing streak. Too bad he'll just end up getting snatched by another team, and the Avs will promote Quinn in the summer.

I want Roy, but Ruff would be a good second choice. I say we should hire him as a scout. Just like Chicago hired Quenneville as a scout before he took over as coach.

Makes sense...His son plays in their system I think.

Buffalo's probably got as good of a chance for Patrick as the Avs do if they play that card.

I'm not so high on Ruff. He hasn't really had much of a system these last few years. They're pretty bad defensively.

Is there ANY indication that Patty Roy is ready to step into the NHL?

My guess is that he's waiting for Quebec to get a team again.

My prediction is gonna come through, Roy will get hired by another franchise before us.

The legend of Joe Sacco, another coach getting fired before him.

This.

He hasn't been nearly as successful since the 2nd most recent lockout. With that being said, he's an easy upgrade over Sacco.

I think so. I think the $$$ is going to have to be worth it for him. His kids are grown up now but he's still heavily involved in the Remparts which make a mid-season change unlikely, if you ask me.

I don't think he's really waiting on Quebec City to get another team, that could take another 2-3 years or more for all anyone knows. Besides, when he was considered for the Montreal job, he mentioned in a press release that he was honored to have been considered and his goal is to eventually become an NHL head coach whether that's Montreal, Colorado or somewhere else. (He mentioned Colorado by name)

I guess the fact that they have Frederick Roy in Buffalo's system is why he's rumored to be going there...I don't see the fit, personally.

Isn't it possible that a lot of that can be chalked up to keeping him as HC way too long after the team started to tune him out? He was way past his shelf life there.

Whoa, wait.

Is he rumored to be going there (Buffalo) or is it rumored that they are interested in him?

I have hopes that Roy will want to coach here.

Also, if the Avs wanted to pay his asking price, and give him the GM/HC role he wanted, they would have doen so instead of hiring Sherman and Sacco. I don't think he's coming here.

I doubt he's going to Buffalo either. Not with Phoenix possibly moving to Quebec next year, and Maloney and Tippet's deals expiring this year.
