The Colorado Avalanche have officially hired Patrick Roy as head coach, re-uniting him with Joe Sakic in the Mile High City.

A fiery motivator and not one for dullness, Roy comes from the Quebec Remparts (which exist) of the Bad Scrabble Board League.

We don’t engage in much speculation here, but yesterday on a radio hit in Nashville, new Predators assistant Phil Housley gushed about the chemistry Paul Stastny and Craig Smith had at the World Championships. Meanwhile, Roy coached erstwhile Predator Alexander Radulov. Seeds of a deal?

Probably not. Enjoy Serge and Brigitte:
