    It's such a tough spot for them because Colorado really could use a bit of everything. That said, when you look at the roster page under "Defencemen" there's a lot of "yikes" there. They have an opportunity to get a very solid player who may be ready to join the club even at 18 years old. It's either that or go the trade/free agency route to bolster the blue line, because I can't see Roy wanting to go forward with that roster.

    That said, he's got familiarity with MacKinnon and Drouin, having coached against them in both the regular season and the playoffs. He's no doubt aware of their very special talent, and would certainly be able to make a pitch to the management team (of which he is a major part) advocating for either of them.

    It was all so clear until the Memorial Cup. LOL

    Anybody that does not take MacKinnon as the #1, whether needed or not, is making a HUGE mistake by leaving him on the table.

    Roy has been coaching in the QMJHL since 2005 and led the Remparts to a Memorial Cup during that timeframe. The team was a perennial contender and always near the top of the Q in offence.

    Gretzky's coaching experience prior to taking over in Phoenix consisted of 0 games at any level.
    I did not know that. I must admit other than following the NHL and AHL I am pretty ignorant to most other leagues. When I first saw the story that they were taking him on as coach, I immediately thought of the Gretzky situation. Apologies for my ignorance...

    I hope they take Jones as a die hard Aves fan, they need better D! I hope they give Barrie & Elliot full time roles next year, see what Siemens and maybe Jones bring to camp, their D is extremely weak.....I like most of them, but our top pair can not be Johnson & Hejda and expect to compete in the NHL lol we have plenty of offensive skill and no longer have an idiot for a head coach so I say take Jones :)

    success on the ice means little standing behind the bench even with his success at junior levels only time will tell if this is a competent move or not
