Patrick Roy’s Determination

It’s no secret that I’m a disciple of the Cult of Patrick Roy. In fact, I not only drink the Kool-Aid, I mix it up and serve it to the masses.

Patrick Roy has earned my respect. He did it as a goalie, and he’s done it as a coach. I love his determination — and his belief in his players. He has said he’ll live and die with his players and that he genuinely loves his group of guys. I fully believe him.

Roy is part of the main reason I believe so strongly the Avs are going to be great next season. The man is highly intelligent, vastly experienced in hockey and obsessed with the sport. He will find the way to steer the ship toward success — no question that he’s capable.

Believe in Roy.
