New contributor to JiC's show on TVA Sports airwaves, Alain Chantelois made a very big statement related to Patrick Roy. In short, everything could play out soon for him, and his future would be intrinsically linked to that of the Ottawa Senators' head coach, DJ Smith.

Due to the high expectations of the organization, which coincide with significant investments and acquisitions made over the past year, Smith only has one more chance to save his position: he must win.

"If DJ Smith falters and doesn't start the season in some wins, it won't drag on." - Alain Chantelois

However, the Sens will not be able to count on two important center players in the lineup, as Joshua Norris is still on the injured list and Shane Pinto is currently without a contract. Young Ridly Greig has big shoes to fill as he is used as the center of the second unit.


The man nicknamed "the Baron" stated that Roy would be a serious candidate to replace Smith at the helm of the Senators.

"Patrick Roy had only one chance in the National League, unlike coaches like Gerard Gallant, Bruce Boudreau, and Peter Deboer." -Alain Chantelois

Obviously, if the famous number 33 were to land in Ottawa, it would be a heck of a catch, not only for the team but also from a marketing point of view. What better than a legend like him to bring back fan interest in this franchise that has been struggling for several years?
