07:27 AM ET 10.28 | Patrick Roy made a splash as a young goaltender in the NHL, and he's shown a precociousness behind the bench in the league, too. In his first season as head coach in the NHL, [Roy had] led the Colorado Avalanche to a remarkable 9-1 record through the first 10 games. ... "We give them the freedom they want offensively," Roy said of his players. "I want them to be creative. That's what the fans are coming for anyways. They want to see some great plays offensively." Roy says what has worked well for him so far is not trying to be as much a coach as a member of the team with a common goal. I'm here to be their partner," Roy said. "I certainly want to help them to get some ideas, come up with different strategies, make some adjustments and the players are very receptive to that."

Let's see how well that "I'm here to be their partner" theory works when they go into a slump.
