The Puck Stops Here

Early Coach Of The Year

I don't think that Patrick Roy is a particularly good technical coach.  Most other NHL coaches can strategize and match lines better than he can.  That doesn't mean that he hasn't been a successful coach so far this season.  He has created the positive atmosphere in Colorado where the team is exceeding expectations.  The Colorado Avalanche have an outstanding and unexpected 12-1 record right now and his coaching is a big part of the reason for it.  Thus he is my early season coach of the year.  I am not sure that he has the ability to turn things around when the going gets tough in Colorado, but as long as things stay positive the Avs are looking very good.  Patrick Roy deserves a lot of credit for creating that environment and as long as this success keeps happening, he could win the coach of the year.
