      One of the more entertaining hashtags on Twitter this morning is #PatrickRoy.

      That's because the mercurial and hypercompetitive former Montreal Canadiens goalie is among those rumoured to be in the running to become the team's next general manager.

      Former GM Marc Bergevin was fired this weekend after the team went into a miserable tailspin this season. Last year, the Canadiens made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals.

      The Canadiens have already announced that Jeff Gorton is the new executive VP of hockey operations, which means he'll be higher on the team's totem pole than the general manager.

      But the team needs a GM who can speak French—and Roy is one of several names being touted, along with former Canucks and Florida Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo, among others.

      There's even an online petition calling for Roy to get the job. But it isn't exactly an overwhelming success. As of this writing, it has collected just three signatures.

      Meanwhile, this is what some other folks are saying about Roy over Twitter.

      Roy was on four Stanley Cup–winning teams: twice in Montreal and twice with the Colorado Avalanche. He also won the Conn Smythe Trophy three times, the Vezina Trophy three times, and the William M. Jennings Trophy five times.
