Patrick Roy is starting to settle into his new role as head coach of the New York Islanders.

He's getting comfortable in his new job.

Unsurprisingly, Patrick Roy shows all his passion and intensity.

He begins to bring his own methods, not only in terms of game strategy but also in terms of the organization's culture.


And also, in terms of ways of doing things.

The legendary former goalie now requires the Islanders players to leave the ice together during practice.

"Roy also demands that all players leave together after the skates. #Isles

- Stefen Rosner, journalist for NHL.com covering the Rangers and Islanders"


No more extra time alone.

Patrick Roy wants group unity, and he has asked his players to proceed in this manner from now on.

He lays down the law, but in a positive way. He is as intense behind the bench as he was in front of the net.
