NHL: Patrick Roy wants another chance as a coach in the NHL
Although he is focused on preparing his Quebec remparts for the Memorial Cup that begins Friday, Patrick Roy is preparing an attempt to return to coaching in the NHL.
Our colleague to Athletics Pierre LeBrun reveals that there are clues that do not lie about Roy’s desire to return to the Bettman circuit.
“I think Patrick Roy has interesting potential. There are already teams that have inquired about his interest, but everything remains tentative, LeBrun said. He is currently very busy preparing for the Memorial Cup. Roy recently transferred agent. He’s now represented by veteran agent Gil Scott. That’s a good sign he’ll get another chance as an NHL coach.”
The reputable journalist believes that the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals could be interested in Roy’s services.
In addition, the name Gerard Gallant is coming up again in Calgary, who are looking for a successor to Darryl Sutter behind the bench.
For the journalist TSN Darren Drager, Gallant could be an asset to keep the Flames star running at full speed. “No one will be surprised that Gerard Gallant, who was sacked by Rangers, is at the top of the list of candidates. He knows Jonathan Huberdeau and the Flames need Huberdeau to be comfortable and productive next season. »
Drager believes Mitch Love of the Calgary Wranglers, the Flames’ affiliate, would also be a good candidate after a good season in the AHL.
