Patrick Roy was relaxing at a local coffee shop recently when a stranger entered, spotted him sitting at a table by himself and dropped by to say hello.
"Hey, coach, how are you doing today?'" Roy related Wednesday. "I was like, 'Oh, yeah, that's me.'"
Call it the dawn of a new era for the Colorado Avalanche, a franchise that has fallen on hard times and is attempting to return to elite status under the leadership of two former stars: Joe Sakic, executive vice president of hockey operations, and Roy, who in May was named vice president of hockey operations and coach.
"Quite frankly, I'm a little nervous, but at the same time very excited about it," Roy said Wednesday in Pepsi Center at his first training camp as an NHL coach. "It's a great challenge ahead of us. I can say one thing to you, I have quality people around me. You're always afraid you're missing some stuff here and there, but the staff that we have here are working so hard and I really feel we are ready for this training camp."
continued and as you can see below, the glitch of embedding NHL videos has been fixed so you can watch Roy's media conference from yesterday.
