We know that Patrick Roy did meet with Pierre Lacroix, who is overseeing the management structure of the Colorado Avalanche. What Roy is doing now is mulling things over. He hasn't officially decided that he wants to coach in the National Hockey League.

What we believe, though, is that he will have an opportunity to coach in the NHL, very likely in Colorado, or perhaps Montreal. Some are suggesting that maybe Bob Gainey goes down the route that he went with Guy Carbonneau in a "mentoring" program. That didn't work so well for Carbonneau, obviously.  In that instance, Roy would come in and work on the bench alongside Gainey...and that seems to be a bit of a stretch.

Roy has had a lot of success with the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL, and won a Memorial Cup there in 2006. There seems to be more of a comfort zone with Roy and the Avalanche right now, and it sounds like it's up to Patrick Roy. If he wants the gig, the Colorado Avalanche are simply waiting for the phone to ring. But trying to determine what that gig is, officially, is tough to do, because some are saying it's not only coach, but "coach plus" - involving something in the management group.

If Patrick Roy decides that he wants to come back to Colorado in either a coaching or a management-type capacity, the team will make a move.
