Patrick Roy's return to Montreal not on a Saturday for HNIC?

Guess now that Avs have played so well this year it begs the question when many had them struggling before year started, but even with that it is odd that HNIC didn't pick this game up

Who cares, he's a coach it won't do good viewership numbers.

It's not that big of a deal really. It's also on Tuesday isn't it.

He's a coach, lets not exaggerate this now...

Not to mention the schedule was out before he was the coach, and that really, not many people outside of Montreal would care to see a former player return as a coach.

I'm a huge NHL fan, a fan of Roy's career, and I couldn't really care less.

Maybe they tried but couldn't fit it in the schedule. Its not easy just to jam this game on a Saturday night.

Gonna be a big deal in Québec City. 3 of my friends are going (2 with Roy Avs jersey, 1 with a Remparts jersey)

I'll certainly be watching. Man I wish we had Roy instead of Therrien.

Why? Because Toronto play Saturday nights and they want to make money, simple really.

I'm sure Buffalo on national TV again will make up for it.

The schedule came out 2 months after Roy was hired. Everyone thought the Avs were going to suck, they were less than irrelevant and now they are relevant. Too bad.

Why is it a big deal? Did he not return while playing for the Avalanche?
