07:21 AM ET 05.20 | When Joe Sakic originally painted a picture of the Avs next head coach, Patrick Roy's resume didn't quite fit the bill -- but things have changed. [Roy] is a strong candidate for the Avalanche head coaching job, an NHL source confirmed Sunday. The former Avalanche goaltender and NHL Hall of Famer is considered a rising star in the coaching ranks and was offered Colorado's head coaching job in 2009 before turning it down. With the job open again, and with fewer personal ties to his job with the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Roy could have renewed interest in coming back to Denver. ... [Sakic] would not comment when asked whether he has met with Roy recently to discuss the coaching job.

I wonder how good an idea this is....this constant need to tie a team to their "glorius past" doesn't always work out so well

I don't know why the Avs are looking at a guy who is notoriously tempermental, especially considering the abundance of impressionable youth on that team.

Forget it! You'd have to wait for much, much later. And, even when our Canuck friends finally come to, the last thing on their minds will be T&R.

I'm not sure about the "more on" comment but anyway I went looking for classic Queen Victoria images but found PM between games.

Ah yes, makes me think of "The Queen Victoria Handicap" on Python......
and we WERE in fact, quite amused

That would be awesome! Let's bring back the rivalry with the Wings! Mike Babcock would surely kick Patrick Roy's ****, just as Osgood and Vernon did in the glorious 90's (pre-salary cap glory days for the Av's)...

It's not a tweak if it's true.
