Well, at least Patrick Roy’s tenure with the Colorado Avalanche can never be described as boring.

Given his fiery nature and unorthodox decisions made behind the bench — pulling the goalie for an extra attacker well before the typical or conventional time in the final minute to a minute-and-a-half range, as an example — his sudden resignation as Avalanche head coach and vice president of hockey operations earlier this month may seem, in a weird way, like an appropriately dramatic end to this latest chapter in his career.
