When the Colorado Avanlanche hired former NHL great Patrick Roy to become their new head coach, they did so not only because he was qualified, but also to sell tickets.
How can a coach sell tickets you ask? Well the scenes following last night’s game between the Avanlanche and the Anaheim Ducks, is Exhibit A.
