There has to be something going on behind the scenes. I can't imagine him just quitting like this 2 months before the beginning of the season if there weren't. Now, that something may be completely on Roy since we all know about his temper and temperament, but it can't be too simple. At least that's my guess.
I put this in the shoutbox, but am putting it here as well.
Glad to see he's continuing his track record of quitting on teams when he doesn't get his way.
Also, the fact that he announced when Sakic was on vacation, says a LOT......
Roy also wouldn't play for Team Canada unless he was handed the starting job. Is that a dog pile that you're wasting your time on?
The guy is a petulant child.
He had one good year in Colorado as a coach when his goalie played at a level that was clearly unsustainable. He may be the worst coach in the NHL. Watch MacKinnons numbers go up with whoever they replace Roy with.
