Dater: Colorado Avalanche will name Patrick Roy their next coach

Mon dieu! Per the Denver Post's Adrian Dater:

Patrick Roy will be the next coach of the Avalanche, according to Roy's brother, Stephane.

"They're discussing the final details of an arrangement. Colorado is going to be very happy. Patrick is looking for a new challenge," said Stephane Roy, the younger brother of his famous sibling.

The Avalanche would not confirm a deal is in place. Patrick Roy could not be reached for comment, and neither could Avalanche vice president of hockey operations Joe Sakic.

Stephane Roy, who played briefly in the NHL, posted on his Facebook page Monday night, "For all my friends I'd like you to know before the official news spreads that my older brother will be the new coach of the Colorado Avalanch(sic)."

In classic Roy class, his liddle brudder can’t help but spoil the Official news by blurting it on his Facebook page. What a jackass.

This is like Gretzky in PHX, only better and funnier.

Avs will likely take Seth Jones with their first pick in the draft…I mean the kid is from the Denver area.  Too bad he won’t help them with Roy in the leadership role.  JMO
