When I think about it, I'd be thrilled to have Patty Roy behind the bench. Team needs some passion and he was very successful coaching juniors. With the right support staff, he could also spend some extra time with Varly.

Also when I talked to him about this, it was a couple months ago as well.

Bender is suspiciously absent today.

Maybe he IS Pierre Lacroix?!?!?

Who really believes Sherman made any major moves without the entire management team weighing in?

Sherman as GM, and Roy as coach and assistant GM makes perfect sense actually.

If Roy wants some control over player/personnel decisions it makes a lot of sense. He'll be able to have more direct control over his lineup, and input on trades/contracts and whatnot, but wouldn't be able to do anything to crazy by himself.

I like it... Roy's passion for winning is exactly what the team needs.

Id be thrilled to have Roy as head coach cause i feel like players will be really scared and intimidated by him given his reputation and attitude. This way we'll see at team that will come out and play the full 60 minutes every night.

I'm guessing he saw the news, started the celebrating/drinking early today, and is passed out on the street somewhere. Just a guess.

A few people around here have said the same thing, I can certainly see it happening. Roy gets the title and final say on moves while Sherman gets "demoted" and handles the day to day stuff, essentially maintaining his current duties.

I hope they have a contingency plan this time, remember what happened the last time they went after Roy...

There will be some fear there, but it's not as if he isn't loved by the younger players hes developed as well. I think he could be the right mix of a hard but fair coach.

Hes also handled guys like Grigorenko, and Radulov well.

I dunno man....E Lacroix leaving and Pierre staying could just be Pierre putting the blame on Eric to keep his job.

Sakic's proven nothing so far and I would rather be in a position to have someone who knows what they are doing so we don't screw it up.

At least it _should_ (which means nothing in Avs organization) be so that owner does absolutely nothing else than sets the budget and names the person to run everything down from there. In other words, Kroenke says that the budget is 60 million and Pierre Lacroix is the one who gets to makes as much results with it as possible.

I just made up that 60 million number for an example and results can mean both financial and on-ice results.

That they've stuck with Sacco for so long has made me wonder if they've had Roy in their sights for some time. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

I can see why they gave Sacco some cost certainty with a 2 year deal and another shot considering how long hes been with the organization and how close the team came last year.

Obviously this team wasn't in it from the outset of the year.

I think our chances ended with Landeskog's concussion.

I think our chances ended with Sacco's return for the season, and Zannon's signing lol. Yeah that hurt though.
