In the much-ado-about-nothing category, you can rack up the Patrick Roy becoming the savior of the Avalanche again. Roy finally turned down the offer that he never got, or would not talk about.
I had a big post written about why bringing Roy into the organization in this way was a mistake, and while some of it is still relevant (what the Avs should be doing to put butts in seats rather than another stunt hiring), I’ll have to cut it down quite a bit.
Tom Luongo and I do talk about it on the podcast, which you can find here. We also talk about other coaches around the league. I have been spending a lot more time on the podcast lately, and it’s something I want to talk about here at some point. Still, I’m having a lot of fun on The Rink. Stop by if you have a chance.
The question I have is, with a team as secretive as the Avs are, what does Tony Granato know about his position with the team? Is he being hung out to dry, or does he know exactly what is going on? If he is replaced, does he have another gig lined up within the Avs? Is he going to be the next head coach of the Lake Erie Monsters? If he isn’t talking, can we assume it is because he still has some version of a job?
Plenty of questions, not a lot of answers.
