He continues to careflly state that there have not been any formal offers. He does not deny talking; he does not offer any other reason for the talks; he says that Lacroiz expressed an interest in what he wants to do.

Hmm, let me think. He's a former star and legend with the Club; they just fired their GM and the coach (hired by that recently fired GM) had been fired by them before. Oh, and the team didn't do very well recently.

It definitely walks like a duck.

I was watching 110% last night and the panel there were trying to convince themselves that Roy was playing the Avs against the Habs. In fact, their "topic" was "Are the Habs Losing Roy to the Avs Again?". As if Roy was somehow the Habs property.

Apparently, Montreal covets Guy Boucher as well as Bulldogs head coach. Boucher is rumoured to be an assistant to Roys yet to be formalized coaching spot.

I'm actually a bit surprised that Gainey is still gainfully employed, to tell the truth. I was going under the assumption that they need a GM, first and foremost. Someone who could fix the situation they are in, which is pretty pathetic. They don't have enough talent to fill a lineup card, and UFAs don't want to go there.

So, unless they are looking at St. Patrick as their GM (and possibly coach as well) I am puzzled by the interest. Unless, of course, they were just trying to fill some airtime.

I'm pretty surprised by this. Most people want to go on to the next level when the opportunity arises. It's not like he needs to do it for money. Then again, he may have just realised what a terrible position that team is in right now. He might want to start his NHL coaching career on a better positioned team.

Geez, thank goodness we have our coach. I don't like anyone on that list to be frank.

Well, perhaps Hartsburg. Sarcasm

Hey SF71: Are you in Toronto right now or is that just where your servers are located?

I agree, this list stinks. It reads like a list of coaches who all recently got fired. Oh wait...

There's a reason why there are many rookie NHL coaches coming into the league.

I have this feeling we see Roy return to Montreal.

Yeah? Huh, that's interesting. I'm not sure what direction Montreal is taking (and neither do they), but they could do worse.

Funny, the gut feeling I had was that maybe, just maybe he's holding out for a return of an NHL team to Quebec City. Could you just imagine, Mario Tremblay returning as head coach of the Canadiens, while Patrick Roy is head coach of the rival Quebec Nordiques. The fireworks would give Michel Bergeron another heart attack.
