Montreal Canadiens: Patrick Roy alongside Martin St-Louis?

Published May 22, 2023 at 12:01

In a hockey team, it's on the ice that it's played, but all the elements are important. From the second floor to behind the bench, everyone has a role to play and nothing should be taken lightly.

At the Habs, although some positions are occupied by less experienced employees, there is no doubt about their competence. Take for example Martin St-Louis and Stéphane Robidas behind the bench, who do a great job.

However, surrounding yourself with experienced people is always good and Patrick Roy would be an excellent candidate for this role, according to Georges Laraque.

"Patrick Roy deserves to be with the Montreal Canadiens, his place is with the Montreal Canadiens. [...] We have to find a role for him, to be with the team now that all the accounts are settled with the management.

I'm not talking about the head coach role, Martin St-Louis is the head coach, but why not behind the bench with him?"

- Georges Laraque

There's no doubt that Roy's name is floating around right now. He's really made it to the NHL, having proven everything he had to prove in junior the past few seasons. Do you agree with Georges Laraque?
