Roy addresses his decision to quit the Avs

ESPN's Craig Custance spoke with Patrick Roy as Roy addressed the media in Quebec City, discussing his decision to leave the Colorado Avalanche last month:

When he resigned, Roy cited philosophical differences with the way the Avalanche were being run. He was one of the few coaches in the NHL with say over personnel, but it wasn't enough say to keep him satisfied.

"The type of players and stuff like that, we didn't necessarily agree on," Roy said. "It goes beyond that. It was people working for the team and stuff like this that we were a little bit different."

The timing of Roy's resignation put Colorado in a tough spot, but he wanted to make sure he wasn't rushing into the decision.

"I really needed to make sure it was the proper decision," Roy said. "It was important for me to have no regrets."
