At the moment, Patrick Roy’s name is circulating a lot in the NHL. He has been linked to the Senators and Rangers, among others.
This has been the case for a few years now (especially with the Habs and their agent), but this year, it seems to be on another level. We’re seeing a lot of his name being bandied about.
The main interested party knows that sometimes there’s smoke without fire, but hey.
All that to say, it looks like the man who’s three wins away from a QMJHL title and a Memorial Cup berth may get his chance in the NHL in 2023, 10 years after he got the job in Colorado.
That’s why the Sens and Rangers are circulating. Other names are also circulating in New York, of course…
I named Columbus, and it’s no coincidence. In fact, on today’s episode of 32 Thoughts, Jeff Marek raised the possibility of the former goaltender taking control in Ohio.

Note that this is not a rumor. He’s just a well-connected guy who’s thinking about the fact that he’s got the tour with the young guys and that the Blue Jackets aren’t old.
But if he’s doing it, it’s because his name is fashionable.
Let’s add that, according to Elliotte Friedman, Patrick Roy is probably burning with the desire to return to the NHL. This confirms what has been said about him for some time now.
– Speaking of the Blue Jackets.
Friedman on 32TP on CBJ head coaching search: “There has been some talk about Pascal Vincent and him deserving the opportunity…One name I kind of wonder about and he gets linked to the Rangers job, which I think makes a lot of sense, is Peter Laviolette”.

– Who will be the next Suns coach?
The Suns aren’t “trading” for a head coach.
Ty Lue – under contract. No coming.
Steve Kerr – under contract. Not coming.
Commence the rumor mill. Just be reasonable.
