Evan’s Daily: Roy Says No Interest From NHL, Vegas Wins The Stanley Cup



nhl stanley cup

The NHL season is officially over, and the Stanley Cup now belongs to the Vegas Golden Knights. For as hyped up as the Eastern Conference was heading into the postseason, their representative didn’t put up much of a fight.

Meanwhile, Patrick Roy officially stepped down from his coach and GM role with the Quebec Remparts, and made it very clear – no one from the NHL is calling right now.

Meanwhile, the Avalanche have real questions at center heading into the offseason, and not just at 2C.

All that and more in this Wednesday edition of Evan’s Daily.

Second line center is obviously a need for the Avalanche heading into the summer, but there are questions down the middle beyond that. What options do they have?

Tanner Molendyk is an undersized defenseman in the draft, but his skating is a perfect fit for the Avalanche.

It was a tough end to the 2022/23 season for the Avalanche, but you might be surprised to find out that they are the early favorites to win the Stanley Cup in 2024.

Stanley Cup

It’s over, and it wasn’t even close. The Vegas Golden Knights are your 2023 Stanley Cup champions.

Bill Foley said they would win within six years, and turns out, he was right.

The Florida Panthers were without Matthew Tkachuk in game five, and that’s because he had a broken sternum. Paul Maurice discussed what he did to even make it through game four.

Around the NHL

Patrick Roy is done in the QMJHL, but it sounds like his NHL prospects don’t look too great right now. When asked if NHL teams are interested, he made it clear – no one is calling right now.

However, his best chance to get back into the NHL might be when the sale of the Ottawa Senators becomes final. And on Tuesday, their new owner was announced. Michael Andlauer, who was part owner of the Montreal Canadiens, will become the new owner of the Senators, but the sale probably won’t close until around September. Andlauer and Roy are friends, and there are rumors he’d want the Avalanche legend to take over as head coach eventually.

Meanwhile, the Rangers are hiring Peter Laviolette to be their new head coach. He’s taking turns running every single team in the Metro Division.

Boston: The Bruins lost in the first round, and then they had to watch their former coach win the Stanley Cup. Tough couple of months for them.

Washington: Tom Wilson is a pain to play against, but if he actually was available, every team would probably come calling.

Los Angeles: Does Pierre-Luc Dubois make sense for the Kings? Austin says no.
