OTPP: Patrick Roy Resigns and Other August News

Last Word on Sports is proud to present their hockey podcast, On the Power Play with Ben and Dave. Join Ben Kerr and Dave Gove each week as they take a look around the Hockey World focusing on the big issues of the NHL and elsewhere.

Ben and Dave have taken a few weeks off as there just was not much news to report in the hockey world. That all changed this week. Now, EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING er, something is happening. The boys are back to discuss the situation.

Patrick Roy Resigns

Patrick Roy resigned as vice president of hockey operations and head coach of the Colorado Avalanche. What led to Roy’s shocking decision? What is the source of the conflict with president Joe Sakic? Where does Roy go next? And where do the Avalanche look for a new coach in August?

Sam Gagner signed a one-year deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets. The boys disagree on whether or not this is a good move for the club. Centre Antoine Vermette was released by the Arizona Coyotes. We tell you why. The boys also discuss the crazy fight in KHL pre-season action, strange rumors of an Alex Ovechkin injury, and a little bit of Olympic talk.

All that and more as we go On The Power Play!
