The Patrick Roy Talk In Montreal

from Brendan Kelly of the Montreal Gazette,

A pal asked me this week how I keep interested during this Canadiens season from hell in which the team is destined to finish near the bottom of the National Hockey League standings.

I said it’s easy. It’s just that the drama isn’t on the ice, it’s behind the scenes and, oh my, is it popping.

Let’s start with the top story, which is recently-appointed executive vice-president of hockey operations Jeff Gorton’s search for a general manager to replace Marc Bergevin. The most buzzed-about potential candidate is, in my view, the one least likely to get the job.

That would be former Habs goaltending great Patrick Roy. Late last week, I was on Tony Marinaro’s podcast and we were both saying how surprised we were that the Canadiens hadn’t even bothered to do even one interview with Casseau. During the weekend, news broke that the controversial star had in fact been interviewed by the team’s brass last week and yet during a news conference Thursday, he denied he’d been interviewed.

When he finally fessed up, he told Renaud Lavoie from TVA Sports that he’d fibbed because he wasn’t sure he was allowed to go public with the info.
