Here’s the thing about Patrick Roy &#151 the madder he gets, the worse he plays. He’s just an emotional guy. So now he’s really mad at the way Colorado has been playing, which is just going to make him reckless, which is just going to make it harder for Colorado to win. It’s a Catch-22.
Also, Colorado’s defensive woes are nothing new. They looked awful in last year’s Western Conference finals against Detroit. Roy was the only thing that kept Colorado alive for seven games. The Avs have no defense or offense, but instead of trying to improve at least one of those things, they’re just leaving it all alone.
Summer vacation might start early in Colorado this season.
