Terry Frei's article in the DP on Pierre Lacroix

In Sunday's DP, Frei wrote an article titled "Pierre's a Champion". He also wrote a follow up article on DP's Avs web page under their blog "ALL THINGS AVS". My apologies for not knowing how to provide the links to these. What I found more entertaining was a readers response to the follow up article. Here is what he wrote:



Weak excuse as to why you conducted a fluff piece for Lacroix. The Avalanche fans are more interested in all the terrible decisions, lack of transparency and total disregard for the fan base by the front office over the past few years. We all know that Lacroix played a major role in bringing a championship to Denver. There is nothing interesting at this juncture in rehashing Lacroix's glory years. Only Lacroix would find such self serving hubris interesting. When Lacroix who rarely answers questions or speaks to the fans regarding their concerns suddenly is open to an interview on the condition you focus on his accomplishments and legacy, I find it sickening that you indulge him. Talk about vanity. This is why journalism is suffering today. Too many folks like you will agree to do an interview by confining yourself to certain conditions just to get the interview. And who ends up paying the price? The fans and public. Sorry I am not going to read the full ode to Lacroix. You should have rejected any conditions being placed on the interview.



I enjoy reading Terry Frei's articles and think that he is a very good at his job, but I have to agree with this readers response.
