Head coach: Rangers don’t see Patrick Roy as a candidate

The Remparts’ Memorial Cup victory has been somewhat overlooked since the announcement of Cole Caufield’s signing.

But no one can take anything away from the Quebec City team: the boys have managed to lift one of the toughest trophies in field hockey, all competitions considered.

And that’s something to be proud of.

In the wake of the Remparts’ conquest, the popular question is: what will it take for Patrick Roy to get the opportunity to come back and lead behind the bench of an NHL team?

Several rumours linked him to the Columbus Blue Jackets, but all indications are that Mike Babcock will be the next head coach of the Ohio organization.

There was also talk of “Casseau” landing in New York with the Rangers. But that possibility is all but forgotten…

Because, according to reports in the last hour, the Rangers don’t consider him a candidate for the vacant head-coaching position.

Is Patrick Roy out of luck?

Do the various NHL teams remember his departure from the Avalanche, which didn’t go so well?

Because, in all honesty, the former goalie deserves to be back in the NHL. His club’s track record and performance over the past year are proof positive, quite simply.

What more can he do? That’s the thousand-dollar question.

I was under the impression that his Memorial Cup triumph would open the eyes of some big-league executives, but clearly that’s not the case.

At the moment, only the Flames and Rangers are without a head coach for next season. We haven’t heard Roy’s name in Calgary, while John Hynes and Peter Laviolette are currently the favourites for the job in the Big Apple…

Let’s just say it doesn’t look good for the future.
