So the next time a team puts up 8 goals against the Avs and the GM doesn't pull him early enough, he's going to waddle up to his office and demand a trade back to Montreal?

The best coaches tend to be 4th liners/bench-warmers who may or may not have long careers but their extensive exposure to the nuances of the game from an intimate and privileged point of observation gives them some special insight into its underlying mechanics. Also, because they are not the most skilled or the most valuable members on their teams, necessity compelled them to become valuable in other ways such as intelligence and strategic thinking. It lends well to a rewarding coaching career once they are done playing. This is especially true in hockey (Don Cherry, for instance, only played in one NHL game).

Superstars like Gretzky are rare, generational talents who have a high-functioning level of intuition backed by an innate skill-set that can't exactly be coached, taught or practiced. A lot of what they did was purely instinctual and only worked for them. That's why they are busts as coaches.

Not sure how this applies to Patrick Roy, but that is the general trend.

FriarReb98: Since this thread is turning into a Wings thread.


I could turn it into a Devils thread if you want. For instance, when you think about Patrick Roy, just remember that...

This should take an interesting toll on what sobriety he still possesses.

Flipper47465: But will Mike Vernon beat him up on Center Ice AGAIN!!

Patty Whaaa   is a puke....   He is the main reason I HATE the AVS.....   On the bright side, the WIngs might never play them again since the AVS never make it to the PLAYOFFs  let alone the CUP anymore....

It is funny how Wha's career is defined by the Red Wings.

You missed McCarty's hat trick that got him pulled at the Joe followed by the crowd chanting, "We Want Wha!  We Want Wha!"  That may have been the Statue of Liberty game.

sno man: Ham Sandvich: Has he coached anywhere since he retired? Star players rarely make decent coaches, especially the ones who try and start at the top.

He bought his son's QMJ team, and coached it to a Memorial cup... but that was a while ago.


His son was quite the goon, too, wasn't he?

I suspect Roy will be a Crawford-type coach... sending goons out to injure opponents. This won't be good for the league, but at least the Red Wings will be int he East next year and won't have to deal with the thuggery much.

Would that be Patrick "Statue of Liberty" Roy?

Cup Check: So the next time a team puts up 8 goals against the Avs and the GM doesn't pull him early enough, he's going to waddle up to his office and demand a trade back to Montreal?


THIS.
