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.
I know, it's just wishful thinking. Who knows, maybe we blow the trade with ROR and finish dead last. As a result, Sherman and Sacco get canned, and we plan a Welcome Party for Mr. Roy

There is what I think gets Sacco fired end of this year. If they aren't resigned.....Its like a 25% chance the Avs will move to get them.

I have hopes that Roy will want to coach here.

I think a lot of us do. Seeing him go to another team while we are stuck with Scratcho would add insult to injury.

Dater in a live chat said Roy wanted too much money and thats why he isnt our coach atm...

You mean Tippet? I don't think Sherman's going anywhere, and there's no way this team hires Tippet with PL's "recipe" as the guiding light.

It's up tempo offense or bust for this team.

It probably didn't make sense back then with a sure to be rebuilding team but it might very well start to make sense soon. (as in this off-season)

I hope its something they would seriously consider, especially if we get a high pick like we think and we get a decent return for ROR. We will start having some real talent on this team and Scratcho's dump and chase isnt cutting it.

There's a good possibility of that happening regardless of the RoR deal. Our defense has allowed 4.66 on avg since EJ went down with his injury.

I'm not sure I want Roy to be coach and GM.

Head Coach should keep him busy.

Let Joe Sakic be the next GM, if he's interested.

Just meant that I think they stay/go together on the Yotes. If they go, Tippett will be free to coach here. Understanding the up tempo offense issue, but I think there is still a chance the Avs make a splash by signing a successful proven coach (similar to the owners who hired Jeff Fisher on the St. Louis Rams after a few attempts with less proven coaches).
I'm an optimist after all.

Watch him sign with another team in the summer while the Avs promote David Quinn?

What will happen is Harley or AV will be fired and Ruff will be hired to one of those teams with Quinn being promoted as coach for us.

I believe we keep Sacco until summer. I understood the value in that. You don't want to bring in a new guy just to continue the tank. With ruff on the table, I want movement now.

Prepare to be disappointed. I don't see the Avs firing Sacco until the end of the season. Don't get me wrong, I'd absolutely LOVE IT but I just don't see it happening.

I'm not saying the botched ROR deal is what is going to make us finish last, we are doing that just fine on our own. But I don't see Sherman going anywhere no matter how bad of a season we have. I think the only way he is gone anytime soon would be to reeeeeally screw up this O'Reilly situation more than it already is. And from Sherman all the way up to the Kroenkes, I feel like that is a very strong possibility...

Why'd you quote me? You thought you'd never see the day when Avs fans want Sacco to get fired?

That is pretty much what will happen. It will be the Hitchcock/Boudreau/Carlyle situation all over again.

Possible , He was in communications a lot with Darcy Regier lately, regarding Mikhaïl Grigorenko. I'm pretty sure that there's a good relation between the two ...Plus add the Fact that Frédéric Roy is in the Sabre's system .

My guess is that he's waiting for Quebec to get a team again.
That was the rumor, last year . But we havent head anything regarding this in a long time .

Was just a general response to the two posts about Ruff getting fired. I forgot the quoted tweet wouldn't show in my post. Never thought I'd see the day where Ruff gets fired.
