Do you know what a hyperbole is?

Via Facebook, Stephane Roy says brother Patrick will be next coach of Avs and now calls out @adater, a highly respected reporter. Please.

This is getting badly out of hands. Otherwise this goes, but my God, Adrian "Helsinki is not located anywhere" Dater a highly respected reporter?

Dater a highly respected reporter? You mean the guy who's always on the plane or sleeping on his off day every time Avs made a big move so he's left wondering what just happened every single time?

Funniest thing I've red all day.

This is objectively wrong. Patrick Roy is probably the best head coach in Canadian Major Junior right now.

Remparts PK
12/13 - 82.6%, 2nd in the league
11/12 - 84.9%, 1st in the league
10/11 - 81.6%, 4th in the league
09/10 - 79.2%, 9th in the league

Remparts PP
12/13 - 25%, 4th in the league
11/12 - 24.5%, 4th in the league
10/11 - 28.7%, 1st in the league
09/10 - 25.1%, 3rd in the league

Try to find a match for that anywhere in major junior, or anywhere else. He seems to know what he's doing at both ends of the ice. You might try to say his junior teams are "stacked" every year, but every junior team goes through a cycle and having that consistent of results year-over-year through a 4 year period, the time it takes to go from a rookie to an overager in the league, the results sort of speak for themselves.

You can say the teams are stacked and it's more about "recruiting" than anything else, but Kitchener/London/Windsor have nowhere near those consistent results year-in year-out. I sort of think Patrick Roy is an okay coach.

So hire him to Avalanche to be the assistant coach who is in charge for the special teams.

Then why isn't there a big outcry to hire Don Hay?

Roy isn't about coaching ability. He barely speaks english. Roy is all about leadership. He is an icon.

I wonder how he feels about Colorado's goalies? The danger of Roy is his access to the French press. He can be very quotable en francais. Is Sakic entrenched? Roy has about ten times the personality Sakic has. Roy will run rings around Sakic for quotability, if he is translated into english. He doesn't pull any punches, either.

I don't really think Don Hay is that good of a coach to be honest with you, did you look at his numbers year over year? They aren't that good actually. He has had good teams but I don't know if he is a great coach. Look at his numbers when the team isn't as good. From speaking with players in the WHL, Don Hay is also one of the most totalitarian junior coaches out there, one of the most demanding and unforgiving coaches in junior hockey which says a lot. NHL players, Jeremy Roenick and others, refused to take part in his practices. Don Hay isn't adaptable. Don Hay has Cory Clouston Syndrome where he needs to be the biggest man in the room and relishes his power over 16-20 year old kids whose future lays in his hands.

Roy went from literally zero coaching experience to producing winning records, goal differentials, and results on special teams that is almost unprecedented in junior hockey, so he knows a little about the tactical side of the game and adapting to changing circumstances. Some junior hockey lifers who have been coaching for 25 years wish they could produce results like Roy.

Gaston Therrien, from RDS, says it's a done deal :

http://www.rds.ca/hockey/lnh/patrick...-saut-1.623952

I don't know how reliable he is. He's not a journalist, he's a former coach, so he may not take the same precautions a journalist would do with his sources.
