Dale Hunter Offers Advice To Patrick Roy

from Bill Beacon of the CP at the Globe and Mail,

Patrick Roy should weigh what he would give up against what he would gain if he decides to leave a sweet set-up in junior hockey to become an NHL coach, according to Dale Hunter, a man who knows both ends of that situation.

For Roy, it would mean leaving a club he has built into a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League power since retiring from a Hall of Fame goaltending career.

“To coach in the NHL is a privilege,” Hunter said Sunday at the Bionest Centre, where his London Knights are competing in the Mastercard Memorial Cup. “But Patrick has to do what’s best for him and his family.

“It’s a challenge, but it’s a lot of fun. It’s the top league in the world. It’s fun coaching elite players. If you’re ready to make the commitment, you should go.”
