07:38 AM ET 09.13 | Patrick Roy, in his first stint as an NHL head coach, doesn't suffer from a lack of competitiveness, and it's showing early in Colorado. [Roy] stopped practice several times Thursday. At one point, he loudly summed up what happens when defensemen stand around in front of the net in odd-numbered situations. "Useless," Roy boomed to onlooking Avalanche players and fans in the stands of Family Sports Center. Welcome to Day One of the Roy era, the coaching version. While the Hall of Fame former goalie pronounced himself pleased afterward with what he saw from his new team on the first day of training camp, Roy pointed out some things he says must improve if the Avs are to move from a lottery team to a playoff team again.
