The NHL has fined coach Patrick Roy $200,000 after last nights outburst.  In a turn of events that unfolded for the Colorado Avalanche in the 3rd period, Patrick jumped on the ice cussing at the linesmen and referees.  He snatched the puck away from the linesman and attempted to hold it up in the air, but while doing so dropped the puck.....

;)

What!?! Hey, It could happen!


From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

Huh, didn't see that one coming. At least not yet.

 

What are your thoughts on seeing Patty Wah as the Avs' future coach?

 

I'm pretty sure Roy turned down, or was strongly speculated to be of interest and said he was not, for the Avs job a few years back.  So to me, this is not really a surprise.  He may have even hinted back then it wasn't the right time, maybe he wanted to stay coaching his son.  I'm not familiar with the timetables on that, so just speculation on my part.

I really hope this happens so I can start hating on the Avs again. There was no other goalie in the league with less class than Patty Wahhh

LOL @ the Avs. Things are going poorly? Bring back Sakic and Roy! That'll turn them around! :D

Of course, but coaches have to come from somewhere. I'd say Dale Hunter did pretty well coming from the OHL. Roy will have the experience of coaching younger players, which will help as the Avalanche develop.

I also think he was put into a much better position. Av's also have a rookie GM, worse team and younger player

Oh you mean this incident?

His kid actually ended up pleading guilty to an assault charge for it.  Between that & the $5000 check he ponied up to charity, he was let go with a discharge & no criminal record.

 

Yeah exactly. This is the quote that I remembered.

 

On video, it appeared that Patrick Roy gestured to his son from the bench before Jonathan made a beeline for Nadeau.

 

What a lunatic.

Big gamble for Colorado. If Roy is unable to turn the team around, it puts management into the position of possibly having to fire him.

Imagine Colorado having to fire the goalie who backboned them to two Stanley Cups.

Roy is pretty tight with Sakic, so this doesn't surprise me. I was really hoping they would take a run at George Gwozdecky, But that's always a gamble too, bringing a college coach to the professional ranks. I agree that this is more of a PR stunt, Avs are losing many of their fair weather fan base :-)

Well, Dater just tweeted that Wah's brother has deleted his Facebook page.  So it may not be a done deal...

I thought he already rejected the job?

Is he doing it for the lawlz? Cause if my crystal ball is worth the sand it's made of, I see this making Gretzky as the Yotes coach look like a good idea.

Yeah but think about it. If the wings were struggling like the Avs and they brought in Yzerman and Lids to coach how would you feel? =)

That being a great player in no way shape or form translates into being a great coach.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Roy has done pretty well as Coach/GM of the Ramparts for what...8 years now? It worked for Babs....he was in the WHL for 8 years before making the jump, wasn't he?
