It’s All About Putting Fans In The Seats In Colorado

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,

Pierre Lacroix isn’t talking and neither is Patrick Roy, but does anybody really think the latter flew to Denver for something other than to discuss the head coaching job with the Avalanche?

So Tony Granato, whose team finished last in the Western Conference, has two years left on his contract. So what? So did a guy named Guy Carbonneau when he was booted out.

If Roy wants the job, he’s got it. And there’s no reason not to want it now that his sons no longer are with the Remparts and Roy has nothing else to prove at the junior coaching level.

It’s all about filling the seats in Denver.
