Patrick Roy spoke out about the rumours about him

Since Sunday night, a rumor about Patrick Roy has been circulating, the one that indicates that he had a tête-à-tête with Geoff Molson at the Hilton Hotel. Obviously, this rumor has taken on such proportions that some media outlets have decided to dot the i's and cross the t's on this subject. I'm talking about Jean-Charles Lajoie...

Anyway, here is Patrick Roy's speech on this subject, he laughed a little, which tells me that the meeting probably took place, even if he came to deny it. The opposite would have been very surprising, wouldn't it? He's not going to repudiate Marc Bergevin's situation publicly... Anyway!

"Anyway, if I had met him, it would not have been at the Hilton. It would have been a lot more at the Capitol," said Patrick Roy.

About the possible candidates to sit on Bergevin's seat, I have the impression that Vincent Damphousse would be more Geoff Molson's choice, he who is a little more Cartesian than the emotional Roy!

Then, don't forget one thing, if Bergevin leaves, it won't be in the middle of the season, but at the end of it. How many times have we seen a GM leave in the middle of the season? A rather rare occurrence.
