07:25 AM ET 05.21 | He's back. Patrick Roy will be the next coach of the Avalanche, according to Roy's brother, Stephane. "They're discussing the final details of an arrangement. Colorado is going to be very happy. Patrick is looking for a new challenge," said Stephane Roy, the younger brother of his famous sibling. The Avalanche would not confirm a deal is in place. Patrick Roy could not be reached for comment, nor could Avalanche vice president of hockey operations Joe Sakic. Stephane Roy, who played briefly in the NHL, posted on his Facebook page Monday night, "For all my friends I'd like you to know before the official news spreads that my older brother will be the new coach of the Colorado Avalanch(sic)."

This guy should not coach in the NHL. Colorado is in for 3 more years of lousy coaching. A great goalie, yes, but after his disgraceful display of coaching in the juniors a few years ago he should have been banned.

Maybe, like those diving, spring golfers in Montreal, it was important for the team to hire a French speaker?

Whew! For a minute there I thought he was going to coach in the NHL for the Avalanche. Colorado dodged a bullet there.

No, I think it was on the tarmac of an airport.

Colorado is really proving its commitment to excrement.

LOL - And Roy's coaching style could be called "Habitat for Inhumanity".

307-128-32...his record in Juniors. I'm sure you're addressing the situation with his son and yes that was not good. People get chances all the time for doing worse things and doing them multiple time. when your record is this good you're gonna get a chance.
