It's been a crazy last couple of days as Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin sent head coach Claude Julien and assistant coach Kirk Muller packing.
A lot of analysts were surprised to see Bergevin hand the job over to Dominique Ducharme who despite his success with junior players hasn't had a head coaching job. That's why some believe Ducharme won't be the team's head coach when the 2021-22 season begins.
No surprise as Patrick Roy has been named as a potential successor and he spoke to the media about it.
Roy confirmed that he would be all ears if Marc Bergevin gave him a call and that he still has a special place in his heart for the Canadiens. He added that it would be silly considering all the success he had in Montreal to not take the opportunity seriously.
Ducharme will be under a lot of pressure the rest of the way and it didn't start out too good as the Canadiens blew a 3-1 lead to the Winnipeg Jets.
While he's still the favourite for the 2021-22 season, we definitely haven't heard the last of Roy's name as a potential new head coach.
Would you like to see Roy behind the Canadiens bench?
Patrick Roy n'a jamais caché qu'il serait à l'écoute si le Canadien de Montréal lui lâchait un coup de fil. Il l'a répété ce matin à la suite du congédiement de Claude Julien. https://t.co/NB7OCuet1z
