He'll need that bare-knuckle passion now that he's finally accepted the job as the Avs' coach. Can he make Coloradans care again about the team, which sucked hard enough to land the first draft pick in the next NHL draft? Check out the clips below and decide.

Try as you might, Colorado will forever be a one horse town .

Championships barely dent Colorado's passion w/ sports outside the Broncos .

ONLY IF, the Avalanche stick w/ him, allowing the growth as a coach/leader as he did throughout the tenure of his career protecting the net.  Roy KNOWS what it is to win and the question now lies as it does w/ Walt Weiss, will it transfer over to successful coaching in the pros? 

We must wait and see .....

Been a winner at every level. He has the creds that the players will listen to him.

They have some young, potentially great players. Roy is an intense competitor. Maybe his status, his presence will elevate their level of play. It worked for the Broncos (Elway)
