Since the Remparts were eliminated in the QMJHL semi-finals by the Shawinigan Cataractes, many are wondering what the future holds for Patrick Roy.

The general manager and head coach has been rather evasive about his future with the organization and some experts believe that the former star goaltender could be preparing his return to the NHL.
And that's the case of Félix Séguin, the Habs' game announcer on TVA Sports.
During his column "Dans l'oeil du chat" on JiC, Séguin even suggested that Roy replace Bruce Cassidy behind the bench of the Boston Bruins, who was fired earlier this week.
Patrick Roy as head coach of the Bruins? What's that?
According to Seguin, Roy would be the right man to guide the Bruins through their transition period, as they will likely have a new look when the 2022-2023 season opens. He also knows the team's president, Cam Neely, very well.
"Ever since Bruce Cassidy was fired, I've been thinking about Patrick Roy. He would fit in perfectly with the Bruins' philosophy. It would be good for him and for the organization."

It will be remembered that in his first season as head coach of the Colorado Avalanche in 2013-2014, Roy led his team to the playoffs after a disastrous season and was rewarded with Coach of the Year honors.
"Roy has always known how to lead young people well. We saw that with the Quebec Remparts and during his time with the Colorado Avalanche. In 2013-2014, the Avalanche weren't going anywhere and he pulled off little miracles."

What if Roy's arrival behind the Bruins' bench could convince Patrice Bergeron to return to the team next year?
Seguin also mentioned this possibility and he even went further by mentioning that if the Quebec forward retires, he could become his assistant behind the bench.
"Imagine Patrick Roy and Patrice Bergeron coming to beat the Canadiens in Montreal, it would be a big seller for the league. Roy's motivation level would be very high with so many games against the Canadiens."

Well okay, we're into speculation here, but imagine for two seconds a Roy-Bergeron tandem behind the Bruins bench? Let's just say that the rivalry between the two teams could reach a higher level.
Ignored several times during the various hiring processes of the Montreal Canadiens, Roy would have a great opportunity here to get revenge and beat the Tricolore.
