I watched him in the AHL. I was amazed he got promoted. He never had a winning season as a coach in either league.

And now all the Dives fans will be screaming for their imagined savior, Patty Roy, to come in as the new coach and the world will be a better place.

Yes, bring him on.  Let’s get it over with.  Doesn’t matter, the Dives will still suck.
