Screw Job

Late Tuesday night, Roy phoned Avalanche president Pierre Lacroix to tell him that, because of family reasons, Roy will not accept the Avs' offer to coach the team this coming season. Roy will continue with the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, but said the door is not shut on his returning to the Avs at some point in the future.  - Adrian Dater

Yep, this offseason is shaping up really nicely. Thanks Pierre!

 

A few updates:

Roy, who would not reveal details of his conversations with Lacroix, said he mulled the offer for two weeks before making the decision.

Remember, Roy was in Denver to "visit his friend" Lacroix just over two weeks ago.

"All I can say is that the Avalanche's offer was more than interesting," Roy told a news conference Wednesday inside Quebec City's Colisee.

In other words, the GM stuff had merit.
