Sacco on thin ice
TheFourthPeriod.com

With three NHL coaches fired since the start of the season, Colorado Avalanche head coach Joe Sacco could be one of the next to fall as his team currently sits in 12th place in the Western Conference with a 10-13-1 record and has lost 10 of its last 13 games.

During the TSN segment "Insider Trading," it was discussed that the Avs have been looking at possible candidates to eventually take over Sacco's position, with the club's former star goalie Patrick Roy leading the way.

Roy, who won two of his four Stanley Cups in Colorado, has been coaching the QMJHL's Quebec Remparts since 2005, where he is also the team's co-owner and GM.

The 46-year-old led the Remparts to the Memorial Cup in 2006.

Avalanche president Pierre Lacroix, who acquired Roy in a highly-publicized trade in 1995, could be looking to find a new vision for the club and would most likely prefer to stick with a member of the Avs' family behind the bench.
