Patrick Roy is known to be an emotional person, yes, but he is also a winner. As much as he was as a player, he is as a head coach and general manager. His team's 12 wins in as many games during the current QMJHL playoffs are proof of that.

Roy is not expected to be back behind the Remparts' bench next season. All indications are that he could well find himself behind the bench of a Canadian team in the NHL.

This is what Michel Bergeron believes.

I know his years in Colorado weren't necessarily successful, but I don't care about that! He's a career coach. Paul Maurice, Rick Bowness, and John Tortorella all had multiple opportunities. Yes, Patrick is hot and he scares some GMs. But at the end of the day, what do you want? To win!" - Michel Bergeron



The Tiger goes further than that, mentioning that Roy would be the ideal candidate for the Ottawa Senators. In addition to leading a good young team, he would be a major factor in getting people to buy tickets.
