from Michael Farber of Sports Illustrated,
Roy carries baggage—his temper, especially—but a lot of that luggage is high-end, Louis Vuitton-type stuff. He has conspicuous passion and undeniable hockey smarts. He also has an ability to motivate, at least at a junior level. While his combustibility might be incompatible with coaching pros, eventually some team is going to find out about his upside.
The one thing Roy does not have is the ability to sell tickets….
If Colorado does want Roy, it should be because they think he can remake the team, run a bench and handle players. The Avalanche should want him for the right reasons—as a coach, not a marketing tool.
more and some “tanking” talk too…
