    We need a guy like this behind the bench someone with a fire and passion for the game. The team feeds off passion like this not just from each other but from their coach.

    He wanted to be more than just a Head Coach.

    Because he was a rookie coach and we (supposedly) had a bad history with rookies coaches.

    Also, Michel Therrien was clearly the best choice available in any language. His Caractere and Respeck is beyond reproach.

    Roy in Montreal would be a gong show. While potentially very entertaining it would not have lasted very long.

    MT round 2 is no better than round 1.
    Same thing night after night, regardless of results.

    Roy in Montreal as a head coach would be a ****ing joke. I'm glad him and his antics are far away.

    I'm sure if Bergevin knew he'd shake the glass and call out the other coach in his first game coaching in the NHL he would've hired him.

    Its funny once but that show will get old quickly. I am not a MT fan at all but is Roy a better coach or just a guy that needs anger management?

    You never disappoint, Overlords. :laugh:
     
  13. He wouldn't be a long-term solution due to his temper. But man, I ****ing love him!
    His passion is beyond anyone. Roy is a winner, though some may not appreciate his any means necessary style.

    I agree with that. Just look at the Lightning with Steve Yzerman as GM and Guy Boucher as coach

    How could you know that?

    He could have been a very good coach for us. There's no doubt he would have brought the "Roy Attitude" here but we know what he's like.

    I think it's stupid to assume it wouldn't last long.

    I think you've got this wrong. Molson did offer the job, but Roy refused. Something about having control of his own team, which would have never happened under a team managed by the Molson family, regardless of who is the GM.

    It would have been a gong show, you can bet the in Denver he will never have to answer " could you have stopped it" after a bad goal. Plus I am sure that his history that there would be people waiting with their hatchets drawn.

    This is not to say Roy is a bad coach, the jury's still out. But his temperament and history and the powder keg that is Montreal hockey, its just not a good mix.

    Because the boards are too solid in the Bell centre. Roy would have been on IR trying to move one of them.

    Goalie = headscase, par for the course
    Coach= head case can be interesting under the right circumstances
    Habs coach = head case, a train wreck waiting to happen.

    Tortorella who some describe as a headcase wouldn't last in Montreal long even if he spoke French.
    Some coaches have the right temperament, Roy ain't one of them.

    Once again, people are mis-attributing Roy's cerebral side for his "fire". Watch the whole game. The Avs were a confident squad who knew what they were doing on the ice and they defeated the Ducks soundly. Yes, Roy has a good bunch of players, but he's the one providing them the directions to apply on the ice.

    Therrien used to be a hot-head too, but it is his questionable roster decisions(Bouillon getting every game) and directions(penalty kill in not aggressive at all) that is the issue.

    Because only in Montreal do they jump at the same coach 2x , no matter what the circumstances are.
