Patrick Roy wants to be the team’s current general manager:
Montreal Canadiens icon Patrick Roy is expecting to become the team’s current general manager.
And his message to his previous club is: Why not him?
“Since 1993, the team has been running in circles,” Roy spoke on Tuesday. “What do they have to lose by giving me a chance, and seeing what I can do with this club?” Source – cbc.ca
The Canadiens’ hunt for a current general manager is on.
After nine and a half years with the side, Marc Bergevin was let go on Sunday. His assistant general manager, Trevor Timmins, and Paul Wilson, who worked as the team’s senior vice-president of public affairs and communications, were also sacked.
The team has appointed Jeff Gorton to be the side’s current vice-president of hockey works, a role Bergevin also continued during his time with the team. Gorton will be in command of searching for a distinct GM.
Roy, 56, got four Stanley Cups as a player, including two with the Canadiens, joining his status as one of the team’s all-time greats. He was drafted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2006.
Roy stated he’d like to add to his previous team’s resurgence in a managerial position.
