Just listened to the pre-game and post-game interviews with Patrick Roy.  I'm quite impressed with his candor.  He even addressed the concerns that people are waiting to see him snap.  haha

 

I had been looking forward to him being intense, but he's so calm cool and collective in the interviews.

 

 Sounds like the guys in the dressing room have really jumped on board.. I' looking forward to a productive season, and hopefully a winning one!

A rock has more personality and intensity than Sacco.

That said, I too like Roys interviews but at the end of the day that's just talk. Let's see how the guys respond. I think we can make the playoffs but after the first few games I'm a bit less optimistic than I was four days ago, though.

Great things get accomplished by human energies when we're not preoccupied with our precarity (art, sport, cities, the internet, cheese), and nasty things are accomplished when we are (police states, goth rock, the atom bomb, et.all).

I think he's the one in the Yotes jersey checking her phone. 

 

I want to believe that expression on McGinn's face is "why can't he go stand behind someone else for a while....this is creepy". :P

I wonder how much Roy will change regarding the media. His honesty is well appreciated after all the PC Kroenke everythings great bullcrap for years.

Why mention Kroenke? PL ran things like the CIA long before SK bought the team. I'm 99% sure it was Lacroix who enforced such a tight-lipped approach to the media. Now that he's gone, it makes sense that we'd be more open. Not just Roy either, Sakic has had a few candid interviews as well (well, at least more candid than his "quoteless Joe" style when he was a player).

perhaps it's because he thinks some of this comes from kroenke too...is that speculation not allowed?

This could be from a must-win game to keep playoff hopes alive.

Where is your proof it wasn't Kroenke? Until then, I'll speculate.

Who's Mr. Grumpy on Roy's left?

 

Would be cool to Photoshop Roy's face onto his (or vice-versa)
