Patrick Roy's name has been linked to the Ottawa Senators for a while now. The new owner started cleaning house with the firing of Pierre Dorion, but it's not enough.

Indeed, the team is struggling to accumulate wins, and they have a negative record. The house cleaning may continue sooner rather than later because they are at a crossroads. Defeat is no longer accepted in Ottawa, and the fans are starting to get impatient.

In Saturday's game, the fans started chanting "fire DJ." Their request is clear; they want the coach's head, and the pressure is starting to weigh on the management for a change.

The Sens play against the Maple Leafs on Wednesday. If the plan is to change the head coach, an announcement could be imminent, or a loss on Wednesday could really be the final nail in DJ Smith's coffin.


Will Patrick Roy be called to replace Smith in the coming days? We know that Michael Andlauer, the new owner of the Senators, has a lot of respect for him. With the team's failures and the demands of the fans, don't be surprised if an announcement is made very soon.

PATRICK ROY WILL BE SENATORS' NEXT HEAD COACH.
