Roy? + So many coaching and GM changes = Great HB Summer! Mon's Buzz

I will be updating the entire rumor chart this afternoon after I talk to the sources around the whole league and the West Coast of the Hockey World is just waking up….

There is no question at this summer is going to be exciting around here.

There’s a saying that you can’t change all the players so you change the coach. In actuality that means you change a lot of the players because coaches and general managers like to have their own guys.

The one exception might be in New York, where the Rangers bringing in a more offensive minded Coach may actually suit the players more than Gallant had.

We will definitely see some major changes in direction elsewhere…..

Back with the details of all of that…. Later…

Patrick Roy in NY?

I didn’t think of this as a real possibility, but aftr seeing how Quebec handled Seattle in the Memorial Cup Playoffs there is a growing feeling that Roy’s time is now. Anaheim could also be very much a factor with Roy.

The biggest issue is Roy convincing management that he won’t be such a loose cannon and bail at the last second…. Drury MAY be the one GM who has a solid enough relationship to trust that wont happen again..
