Patrick Roy became head coach and vice president of hockey operations for the Colorado Avalanche prior to the 2013-14 season. Roy's legendary status as a two-time Stanley Cup winner in both Denver and Montreal ? and his penchant for wielding a fiery temper ? should get the attention of a young Avalanche roster. In fact, the new head coach was already fined $10,000 for his outburst and shouting match with Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau during their season opener. Roy nearly pushed over the glass between the two teams at the end of the game, which Colorado won convincingly 6-1. Here are the notable Hockey Hall of Fame players (from the expansion era) who went on to become head coaches in the NHL, and how they fared.
