Default Pat Roy

Does he have the demeanor to last as a head coach in the NHL? One game and a $10K fine for losing his marbles with Boudreau. I get the competitive fire, but I'm not sure he will last too long with that degree of self-control. Please discuss.

I doubt the 10k fine will lose him much sleep.

It's good to see the wrath of St. Patrick back in the NHL. I can't wait to see him and Tortorella go at it.

Actually I think any enigmatic coach is good for a sport. A HOF enigmatic coach is a rare bird. Now, how he conducts himself in the lockeroom with the players will go a lot farther as to his tenure rather than any on-ice antics.

I wish most coaches would stand up for their players like that. It shows Passion for his players that he could get that upset even when his team is blowing out the other team. As far as Boudreau, as a Washington fan I watched him dismantle this team, and saw his lack of passion.

Patrick Roy rocks.

Just what the sleepy coaching fraternity needs.

Love it. Avs have a tough scrappy team that plays hard. NHL needs more teams and coaches like Roy.

Boudreau is exact opposite. He should go coach figure skating.
