Avalanche remain silent on report that former star goalie Patrick Roy may return as coach

DENVER - Avalanche fans are talking about the possibility of Hall of Fame goalie Patrick Roy becoming the next coach of the Colorado team.

Roy's younger brother, Stephane Roy, posted a Facebook note late Monday night saying his brother would be the new coach. Stephane Roy later told The Denver Post: "They're discussing the final details of an arrangement."

The organization remains silent on the report, saying in an email to The Associated Press on Tuesday that the Avs, "won't comment on any speculation on this issue."

Call-in shows revolved around Roy possibly reuniting with Joe Sakic, who has a prominent role in the front office. Sakic looks to steer the foundering franchise back to the glory days when the duo led the team to two Stanley Cup titles.

Quote of the Day

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
