Kukla's Korner Hockey

Roy started to feel like a coach. A coach only. He was starting to feel like men he had played for who might or might not have been good behind the bench but had little influence on the organizational decisions about who was on his roster. He thought it would be different, working with a fellow Hall of Famer and teammate in a market where he paraded twice. It would have been similar in Montreal, but not exactly the same.
Did he quit on the Avs? Sure, he did. As coach. Because he thought he had been fired as a VP.
