Colorado has so much young talent. Roy’s job coaching them this season isn’t really that impressive except when shown against how bad they managed to be last season, which was sort of inexplicable.

I just became glad we are not in the Western Conference any more.  Holy crap this kid is raw talent.  Wayne Gretzky 2.0?

Another classless red wings fan. If it was so easy to coach that talent, why were they so bad last year?

It takes a good coach to coach good talent. Dave Lewis obviously couldn’t handle it. Roy looks like he can. Stop discrediting him because Roy is the 2nd best ever and you had a rivalry.

//It takes a good coach to coach good talent//

so what does it mean that they were so bad as a team last year?

Roy has done a good job this year. I’m just not sure he’s the genius many are making him out to be. He could be, but we need to see a couple years of coaching in the NHL first.  Let’s see how he handles adversity & how he handles the expectations the Avs are now going to have for the next couple years after the year they’ve had so far.

give this kid 2 years and he will win the scoring title!!  A lot of fans in Canada don’t get to see this 18 year old play enough, but this nhl playoffs is a coming out party of sorts. This kid is the all around hockey player. He is a franchise player. And Colorado is loaded with young talent, they will be a force in the NHL for years to come.

I said it last night on the Open Post that, “This kid’s for real.”
